Tried to use this plugin, but it doesn't seem to be working: https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-post-type-permalinks/

I'm setting a permalink structure for by blog posts in settings>permalinks like so: /blog/%postname%

I also have a custom post type called "project", where I want the structure to be /our-work/%postname, but instead the /blog part gets prepended here too. How can I keep a separate permalink structure for this custom post type?

Here's the register_post_type function:

register_post_type('project', array(
    'public' => true,
    'custom' => true,
    'show_ui' => true,
    'supports' => array('title','editor','revisions'),
    'labels' => array(
        'name' => 'Projects',
        'singular_name' => 'Project',
        'add_new_item' => 'Add New Project',
        'edit_item' => 'Edit Project'
    'menu_icon' => 'dashicons-portfolio',
    'show_ui' => true,
    'show_in_menu' => true,
    'show_in_rest' => true,
    'rewrite' => array(
        'slug' => 'our-work', 
        'with_front' => true
    'has_archive' => true,
    'show_in_graphql' => true,
    'graphql_single_name' => 'project',
    'graphql_plural_name' => 'projects',
    'cptp_permalink_structure' => '%post_id%'

Just set the with_front argument to false:

register_post_type( 'project', array(
    ... your args.

    'rewrite' => array(
        'slug'       => 'our-work',
        'with_front' => false

    ... your args.
) );
