At the moment, this is how I access brands (custom post type) on my page:


I would like to access brands like this:


This is reasonable, bacause each <brand> lives in a <sub_category> so I'd like to have it reflected in the URLs (and later, breadcrumbs).

The permalink on the admin edit page for brands is also http://example.com/<base>/<brand>.

How can I build URLs that I'm after - so that <brand> is prepended with <category> and <sub_category> ? What are my options ?

Change the Settings -> Permalink to Custom Structure /%category%/%postname%/

Now while editing the post, check only the subcategory and now the parent category is nested within the URL automatically.
