    Hello guys,

    I have an issue with the hierarchy of one of my blogs.

    I have 3 Pages which should act as a logical parent category to some Categories.

    Example of my navigation menu -

    Page 1 > Category 1 > Sub-Category 1
    Page 2 > Category 2 > Sub-Category 2 > Sub-Sub-Category 1

    and so on.

    So when I am in one of the categories, the URL is:

    .com/category/Category-1

    So how can I put the Parent Page in the URL and the breadcrumbs in this situation?

    URL example: .com/category/Page-1/Category1 (or without the taxonomy 'category')

    Breadcrumbs example: Home >> Page 1 >> Category 1

    Also G's microdata tool shows breadcrumbs for a post with this path as '.com >> Category 1' and I want it as '.com >> Page 1 >> Category 1'

    I know that by default Pages cannot be parents to categories but is there some way to do it?

    I have just installed Type plugin for custom post types but I am not sure that this is what I need.

    Hope you got it and could give me a tip.

    Thanks!

    That can be done by using a custom theme were you can create categories page template with loop calls. Default or plugin wise. I am not so sure if its possible.
