Here's my situation:

I have a custom post type I created called "professions" with three professions ("military", "firefighters", "law-enforcement").

I created a page single-professions.php to use as the post page.

I set the slug to "heroes" in my register_post_type function:

'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => 'heroes', 'with_front' => false )

Here are the full options I set in register_post_type:

$args = array( 'label' => 'professionals', 'description' => 'Professions of clients served', 'labels' => $labels, 'supports' => array( 'title', 'revisions', 'custom-fields' ), 'hierarchical' => false, 'public' => true, 'show_ui' => true, 'show_in_menu' => true, 'show_in_nav_menus' => true, 'show_in_admin_bar' => true, 'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => 'heroes', 'with_front' => false ), 'menu_position' => 25, 'can_export' => true, 'has_archive' => false, 'exclude_from_search' => false, 'publicly_queryable' => true, 'capability_type' => 'page' );

My URL structure for each type looks like the following:


I also created a page type called "heroes":


In addition, I created a page called "signup" and set it's parent to "heroes":


However, the child page 404's (the parent page url does not, I think due to has_archive => false).

Is it possible to have child pages and custom posts share the same parent path?
