I have created three taxonomies named “city”, “company” and “profession”. link structure of this taxonomy is as follows:




I want to use city taxonomy at the end of company and profession taxonomy. in that way i would like to filter companies and professions depending on cities. see as follows:



It is possible to do it in that way? if so, how can i do it? any alternatives?

That's quite possible by changing add_permstruct or filtering rewrite_rules. But what is your strategy for generating links for city? How will implement second taxonomy?

I would go for implementing this as rewrite rule for something like

add_filter( 'rewrite_rules_array', function( $rules ) {
    global $wp_rewrite;

    $new_rules = array(
        '(company|profession)/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/?$' => 'index.php?$matches[1]=$matches[2]&city=$matches[3]'

    $rules = array_merge($new_rules, $rules);
    return $rules;

However, this isn't optimal and you will need to generate the bunch of supported rules (paging feeds). But you still need to generate links for them and its up to you!


  • Thank you @Butuzov . In fact, what I want to do is filtering out companies and professions by city. Do you have a better idea for that?

  • Select post from city, then select companies, and professions assigned ot city. now you have filtered professions and companies. Apr 23, 2018 at 7:47
