    The problem I am having is not related to GP.

    I would like to create categories and subcategories according to a scheme with URLs. Example:

    Category name (URL)

    Parent: Designer (designer) – test.com/designer/
    Sub: Designer New York (new-york)


    Second sample category:

    Parent: Web Designer (web-designer)
    Subcategory: Web Designer New York (new-york)

    Every time I save the creation of the second subcategory, the url changes automatically to web-designer-new-york

    For example, when we create pages in the page editor, there is no such problem because each page has a parent and wordpress does not treat this as a duplicate.

    Is there a simple solution to do this?

    Thank You

    Hi there,

    i really don’t know if there is a solution for that.
    WordPress requires a unique slug for each category term – For example when you create:


    The same page should be reachable with just:


    Which is why duplicated category terms have to have different slugs.

    The only solution i can think of is to NOT use a sub-category but instead use another taxonomy or attribute for that. Which could be common to all products. But then you may require a developer to create some rewrite rules for the slugs.


    Thank You for the answer
