I want to have the possibility of navigate by 'standard Tags' inside my custom post type 'Car', like the following:



Of course, this will show only post from post_type 'car'. Not standard posts.

I guess, I need a rewriting function or sort, but I am not good enough to start from scratch.

Any suggestions, code, plugins? Or any clue how I can do what?

Here my settings:

I'm using custom post type + specific custom post type category

  • post_type: car
  • post_type-category : car_sedan, car_suv , car_supercar
  • standard Tags : toyota, hummer, blue, red

I'm using the Magic fields 2 plugin.

Note: I do not want to create specific post_type tags, because I allready have a lot of tags and a lot of tagged posts.

Perhaps you can use the Permalinks.

Admin » Settings » Permalinks

You could set the 'tag-base' at the bottom to cars, and chose a structure like %tags%. I tried this at localhost, and it works.

The problem is, that now all tag-pages have a url with


You wrote, that you use lots of tags, and I suppose, they are used in different post-types.

If this is not ok, I would suggest writing a page-template, with

/* Template name: cars page */

and create a page called cars, to display all cars-posts with the requested tag.
