Thank you in advance

  • Are the brands in the WordPress database? If so, are they a custom post type (posts, page, etc)? – Tom Oct 24 '17 at 14:41
  • yes in wp_brands table in WordPress database and they are not pages or posts. what i want it's like this page goodeed.com/brands – sihamxxi Oct 24 '17 at 14:45
  • Is the wp_brands table your own custom table? – Tom Oct 24 '17 at 14:47

Since the wp_brands is your own custom table, I would recommend passing the brand the user clicks on via Query String:

http://example.com/your/permalink/?brand=xyz

You can access this via PHP in your page template(not the wp-admin editor) like this:

$_GET['brand'];

Once you have that you can use whichever brand the user chose to query the database. This isn't the "WordPress" way of doing things, but it will solve the issue.
