I have tried many ways to display my custom post type as single-{post-type} and finally it works nicely once i used:

'rewrite'=> false,

before that, i used

'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => 'custom-post-type' )

but never works for me. Don't know where i made mistake. Right now i should feel happy cos its working without any error. But have a small confusion for the permalink because its display:

  1. localhost/myblog/?news=breaking-news
  2. instead of: localhost/myblog/news/breaking-news

anyone please provide me some idea how to get link like: localhost/myblog/news/breaking-news

my permalink structure selected:


and its working for other post types.

Like you wrote above, you should use 'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => 'custom-post-type' ) when registering your post type.
