Custom Permalinks

Description

Lay out your site the way you want it. Set the URL of any post, page, tag or category to anything you want.
Old permalinks will redirect properly to the new address. Custom Permalinks gives you ultimate control
over your site structure.

Be warned: This plugin is not a replacement for WordPress’s built-in permalink system. Check your WordPress
administration’s “Permalinks” settings page first, to make sure that this doesn’t already meet your needs.

This plugin is only useful for assigning custom permalinks for individual posts, pages, tags or categories.
It will not apply whole permalink structures, or automatically apply a category’s custom permalink to the posts
within that category.

If anyone wants the different Structure Tags for their Post types or use symbols in the URLs So, use the Permalinks Customizer which is a fork of this plugin and contains the enhancement of this plugin.

Filters

Plugin provides some filter which maybe used according to your needs.

To exclude any Permalink to processed with the plugin so, just add the filter looks like this:

function check_xml_sitemap_url( $permalink ) {
  if ( false !== strpos( $permalink, 'sitemap.xml' )) {
    return '__true';
  }
  return;
}
add_filter( 'custom_permalinks_request_ignore', 'check_xml_sitemap_url' );

To exclude permalink from any post type so, just add the filter looks like this:

function yasglobal_exclude_post_types( $post_type ) {
  if ( $post_type == 'custompost' ) {
    return '__true';
  }
  return '__false';
}
add_filter( 'custom_permalinks_exclude_post_type', 'yasglobal_exclude_post_types');

Note: custom_permalinks_exclude_post_type doesn’t work on the posts permalink which has been created previously.

To make the like query works as it was before so, just add this line in your theme’s functions.php:

add_filter( 'custom_permalinks_like_query', '__return_true');

Note: Use custom_permalinks_like_query filter if the URLs doesn’t works for you after upgrading to v1.2.9

To add PATH_INFO in $_SERVER Variable just add this line in your theme’s functions.php:

add_filter( 'custom_permalinks_path_info', '__return_true');

Reviews

Great!

After looking for lot of time for something like this I’ve got it!!

Thank you

Great plugin!! Sets the categories you want!

Thank you for the wonderful plugin. It was exactly what we needed. Since we have a bunch of categories, the permalink structure wasn’t letting us select which categories we wanted in the permalink. This plugin saved the day and now we can override the ones that require certain categories.

Seamless and does the trick – Perfect!

I just needed to add extra path levels to the URL (e.g. example.com/read-my/blog instead of just example.com/blog) and it does that effortlessly.

I was a bit worried about how this works in practice as it sounded a bit complicated in the blurb but it simply replaces the editable permalink field on the post / page and integrates seamlessly into my standard process.

Really happy with the plugin – Thanks!
