        'labels' => array(
        'name' => __( 'Services' ),

      'public' => true,
      'supports' => array( 'title','editor','thumbnail','page-attributes','custom-fields'),
      'capability_type' => 'post',
      'rewrite' => array("slug" => "services/%services_type%"), // Permalinks format
      'menu_position' => 6,         

add_action( 'init', 'wpt_services_posttype' );

//code for adding texonomy
function services_init() {
  // create a new taxonomy
      'labels' => array(
              'name'=>'services type',
              'add_new_item'=>'Add New type ',
              'new_item_name'=>"New type" ,


      'show_ui' => true,
      'show_tagcloud' => false,
            'hierarchical' => true,
      'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => 'services' ),

add_action( 'init', 'services_init' );

add_filter('post_type_link', 'services_permalink_structure', 10, 4);
function services_permalink_structure($post_link, $post, $leavename, $sample)
    if ( false !== strpos( $post_link, '%services_type%' ) ) {
        $service_type_term = get_the_terms( $post->ID, 'service_type' );
        $post_link = str_replace( '%services_type%', array_pop( $service_type_term )->slug, $post_link );
    return $post_link;

Yes, any of those are possible and configurable under Settings > Permalinks. Have a look at the Permalinks page for other possibilities.


Hope this will help you.

  • try this /%category%/%post_id% /%category%/%post_id%/%postname% Jan 5, 2016 at 9:58
  • One thing to note though, it's suggested to add a number at the beginning of your permalinks to reduce the number of rewrite rules WordPress has to generate to resolve all of your URLs. Jan 5, 2016 at 10:00
  • no that doesn't do anything,, anyways thanks for trying to help
