WP core issue

Reported by: belenenses Owned by: Belenenses
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: major Version: 3.0.4
Component: Permalinks Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:



It transpires that the permalink structure that was recommended to me on a WP Forum is not apparently an option !

I want my permalinks settings to be /%post_id%/%postname%/

However, as I construct the site, I now notice that this format only affects my Posts urls, but not my Pages.

I asked a ‘geek’ on StudioPress…

“How do I get Pages to respond to my desired permalink structure?

I can only get Pages to appear something like mysite.com/24pink-custard

rather than mysite.com/24/pink-custard.”

He replied: “It cannot be done. This is a WP core issue. If you would like to bring it up with them I recommend submitting a trac ticket.”

Back to square one?! Or is the compromise page url good enough to avoid the WP functionality problems resulting from /%postname%/

or /%category%/%postname%/ urls?

This is as expected, The permalink option only affects Posts, as it's a Post Permalink field.

You can use a plugin to change page, taxonomy and custom post type permalinks, Whilst I've not tested it, This is one such plugin which claims to do it: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/advanced-permalinks/

Closing as Wontfix due to this being plugin material.
