I would like the URL structure of my site to be like this:


I am using the WP Types plugin and I have created a custom post type, books, and a category, education. I have created a post in books and I have assigned it to education.

When I type http://localhost/testwp/books/, the permalink works fine, but when I type http://localhost/testwp/books/education, I get the message:

«Oops! That page can’t be found»

Am I going in the right direction, or do I have to use custom-taxonomies instead of categories?

I also have the Custom Post Type Permalinks plugin installed.

The permalinks settings will be like this:


So you can do:

  • thank you for your post but i would really like to stay in the url logic described before. example.com/custompost example.com/custompost/category example.com/custompost/category/my-post or example.com/custompost example.com/custompost/customtax example.com/custompost/customtax/my-post thank you
