I am trying to add categroy to the single permalink.
so it reads root/page/CATEGORySLUG/name/john-doe
Any idea how I can get the category in there?

Sorry, but it is not possible to put the category slug in that location in the permalink.05/17/2019 at 10:07 am #492339
IS it possible in another location?
optimal I would like it to be:
Is this impossible?

If not possible, is it possible to remove the word /name/ form the url. I tried to remove it from advanced settings but didnt work.05/17/2019 at 10:22 am #492343Steven ZahmKeymaster
Sorry, no, it is not possible to remove the permalink slugs. They must exist. It is just how WordPress works. It needs the key/value pairs in order to function because this is how WordPress “know” how read the URL. So a category URL has to be:
You can change the
catpart of the URL on the Connections Settings Advance admin page. But if you change it, it must be a value which does not conflict with WordPress or other custom post types (CPT) permalinks.
An individual entry permalink has to be this:
You can change the
catpart of the URL on the Connections Settings Advance admin page. Again, if you change it, it must not conflict with other WordPress permalink slugs.
If you do not have the permalink slugs, WordPress will assume you are trying to load a blog post and thru a 404 not found error.05/17/2019 at 10:27 am #492344
Ok I understand. No need to change then. My url is already optimal as to what is possible. We will live with the simple form:
one side question (if I may), I am using your beta postcode search thing. Works well.
Question: Can this search within a category?
Thomas05/17/2019 at 10:34 am #492345
ps. Dont really agree with “the way wordpress works” because a blog post can have the category in the url and so can a woocommerce product. Why not a connections connection?
