    Alright. Earlier today I switched my perma-link structure to be "/%category%/%postname%/" Which looks great. on my "blog" page the page was "/blog" and each post had a very nice URL.

    What I hadn't noticed was this completely changed the Woocommerce shop items and broke my store. I have since reverted back to default perma links.


    If you click a product you can see it has a nice permalink. such as "/?product=20pc-lock-pick-set-leather-case" by default.

    if you click blog you see it is "?page_id=210" and each post is ugly as well.

    Is there something I can do? to leave Woocommerce posts unaffected by the custom permalinks?

    Not only did it break my store, I don't want to ruin my SEO by changing everything.

    I added the modual provided by Wordpress to my .htaccess file. It makes no sense.

    The blog and posts show up fine. When you look at products at the shop they 404. and if you go to edit the products, and click "view" it will link you straight to the 404

    my word with woo theme. don't go for them. they look good, but distracts your users and reduce your earnings. the more simple the more $$$.
