Alright, so I have been trying to solve this issue for a while. I am trying to achieve this link structure for the categories and posts on my website [http://www.MovieReserve.com] Code: Movies: Action - http://www.moviereserve.com/movies/action/ Animation - http://www.moviereserve.com/movies/animation/ Comedy - http://www.moviereserve.com/movies/comedy/ Drama - http://www.moviereserve.com/movies/drama/ Fantasy - http://www.moviereserve.com/movies/fantasy/ Horror - http://www.moviereserve.com/movies/horror/ Romance - http://www.moviereserve.com/movies/romance/ Sci-Fi - http://www.moviereserve.com/movies/sci-fi/ Sports - http://www.moviereserve.com/movies/sports/ Suspense - http://www.moviereserve.com/movies/suspense/ Thriller - http://www.moviereserve.com/movies/thriller/ TV Shows: Action - http://www.moviereserve.com/tvshows/action/ Animation - http://www.moviereserve.com/tvshows/animation/ Comedy - http://www.moviereserve.com/tvshows/comedy/ Drama - http://www.moviereserve.com/tvshows/drama/ Fantasy - http://www.moviereserve.com/tvshows/fantasy/ Horror - http://www.moviereserve.com/tvshows/horror/ Romance - http://www.moviereserve.com/tvshows/romance/ Sci-Fi - http://www.moviereserve.com/tvshows/sci-fi/ Sports - http://www.moviereserve.com/tvshows/sports/ Suspense - http://www.moviereserve.com/tvshows/suspense/ Thriller - http://www.moviereserve.com/tvshows/thriller/ I could solve this by setting the link structure to /%category&/%postname% but that doesn't work perfectly as although I have 2 parent categories (Movies and TV Shows) with the other categories stemming from them, I can't assign the same slug to two different categories. I tried the Advanced Permalinks plugin, but that will only change the structure for posts and not the category itself. I tried the Custom Permalinks plugin, but that will only change the structure of the category and not for the posts within the category. I tried using both, but that makes both the category and the posts within them get an error (webpage not found for category and 404 for post).
