  • I am looking for something similar and I managed partially. I managed to ‘construct’ a new permalink, but it’s not working, it’s forwarding to home.

    I was trying to get the following permalink structure: /post-type/%post_id%-%custom_field_1%-%custom_field_2%

    That I managed with the code below. But the permalink itself forwards to home instead of the post itself.

    If anyone sees an error, or knows the solution, please let me know.

    function register_rewrite_rules()
        global $wp_rewrite;
        $url_structure = '/my_post_type/%post_id%-%cf1%-%cf2%';
        $wp_rewrite->add_permastruct('my_post_type', $url_structure, false);
    function my_custom_permalink($permalink, $post_id, $leavename) {
        $post        = get_post($post_id);
        $dvp_name    = get_field('dvp_name', $post_id);
        $dvp_city    = get_field('dvp_city', $post_id);
        $rewritecode    = array(
        if ( !empty($permalink) && !in_array($post->post_status, array('draft', 'pending', 'auto-draft')) ) {
            $rewritereplace = array(
            $permalink = str_replace($rewritecode, $rewritereplace, $permalink);
        } else { // if they're not using the fancy permalink option
        return $permalink;
