I've a category, let's say "testcat". I want to create some pages which the final url should be "http://example.com/testcat/pagename". To do this, I should create a page named "testcat" and then a page named "pagename" with the page "testcat" as parent page. I tried and it seemd to work, but I'm worried about what's happening in the backend as actually there should be TWO pages on the same url http://example.com/testcat/: the default category page for "testcat" category and my custom page "testcat".

Could you help me to understand if this is the right way to do what I want, or should I use another method? Thanks.

  • The default behavior of wordpress for the categories is example.com/category/testcat so unless you haven't change the permalink structure you shouldn't have a problem
