ACF Relationships in Custom Post Type Permalink

  • My problem is one that i can’t seem to find a solution to.

    I have 2 Custom Post Types, Mangas and Chapters, every chapter published will always be connected to a manga via the ACF relationship field.

    The current permalink structure for the chapter is site.com/chapters/chapter-title and what i want is site.com/mangas/connected-manga/chapter-title

    Since wordpress doesn’t offer much in the way of post-to-post relationships, the ACF relationship field is great for this and i have everything figured out except for this… the permalink.

    Any help would be appreciated. Please bear in mind that i don’t want to use an extra plugin for this.

  • Hi,

    In cases like you, unfortunately the nature of wp’s url, you gonna have to add the rewrite rule yourself.

    You can have a look at add_rewrite_rule.
    https://codex.wordpress.org/Rewrite_API/add_rewrite_rule

    So, your code will look something like:

    
    function custom_rewrite_basic() {
        add_rewrite_rule('^mangas/([^/]*)/([^/]*)/?', 'index.php?chapters=$matches[2]', 'top');
    }
    add_action('init', 'custom_rewrite_basic');
    

    Cheers

  • Oh, forgot one more thing.

    remember to go to the backend, Settings->Permalink and click save. so your custom rewrite rule will be saved.

    Cheers

  • Hello,

    you can do it without adding any permalink structure via hooks using the plugin:
    https://github.com/athlan/wordpress-custom-fields-permalink-plugin/

    and use any custom post field generated by ACF in URL permalink.

    Cheers,
    Athlan
