I have a taxonomy called Section and a Custom post type called Developments.

What i need to achieve is a permalink on the taxonomy with custom post type prefixed: e.g:

  1. custom post type: development <- More than one custom post type so needs to be dynamic
  2. taxonomy: section
  3. term: casting

http://site.com/development/section/casting

What i have at the moment:

  1. taxonomy: section
  2. term: casting

http://site.com/section/casting

Permalink Structure: Post name

PS* Any help will be much appreciated:

// Register Section taxonomy for Development, Pre-Production, Shooting & Post-Production
add_action( 'init', 'jh_register_taxonomy_section' );

function jh_register_taxonomy_section() {

    $labels = array(
        'name' => _x( 'Sections', 'sections' ),
        'singular_name' => _x( 'Section', 'sections' ),
        'search_items' => _x( 'Search Sections', 'sections' ),

        'menu_name' => _x( 'Sections', 'sections' ),
    );

    $args = array(
        'labels' => $labels,
        'public' => true,
        'show_in_nav_menus' => false,
        'show_ui' => true,
        'hierarchical' => true,
        'supports' => array('title', 'editor', 'excerpt', 'thumbnail'),
        'rewrite' => array('slug' => 'section', 'with_front' => true, 'hierarchical' => true),
        'query_var' => true
    );
    register_taxonomy('sections',array('development','shoot','pre_production','post_production'), $args );
}

// Register Developments custom post type
add_action('init', 'jh_register_developments');

function jh_register_developments() {

    $labels = array(
        'name' => __('Developments', 'development'),
        'singular_name' => __('Development', 'development'),
        'add_name' => __('Add New', 'development'),
        'not_found' => __('No developments found', 'development'),
        'not_found_in_trash' => __('No developments found in Trash', 'development'),
        'menu_name' => __('Development', 'development')
    );

    $args = array(
        'labels' => $labels,
        'public' => true,
        'publicly_queryable' => true,
        'has_archive' => false,
        'supports' => array('title', 'editor', 'excerpt', 'thumbnail'),

        'rewrite' => true,
        'menu_position' => '35',

    register_post_type('development', $args);
}

Try changing the $args you are passing into the register_taxonomy method so that rewrite -> slug includes the development tag

$args = array(
        'labels' => $labels,
        'public' => true,
        'show_in_nav_menus' => false,
        'show_ui' => true,
        'hierarchical' => true,
        'supports' => array('title', 'editor', 'excerpt', 'thumbnail'),
        'rewrite' => array('slug' => 'development/section', 'with_front' => true, 'hierarchical' => true),
        'query_var' => true
    );

    That works fine for only development post type, but this taxonomy is shared across other post types "shoot","pre_production","post_production" so i need a way to make that dynamic depending on the custom post type we're in. I will play around with get_post_type($post) and try and get that to work in the rewrite somehow and give some feedback. – Loxzibit Mar 25 '13 at 10:23
