    I think I’m missing something essential here about WordPress, but is there a way to link a post type (custom post type) to a parent page?

    For example, if I have an Article under a page called Resources:

    When I click to the single view of the article:

    The permalink loses it’s structure. I figured out to fix this through the rewrite function, but this does not help me when trying to install breadcrumbs.

    How can I have the single view of a post retain it’s link to it’s parent page?


    I just logged on to post the same question here. I have spent a ton of time researching other sites and the official WordPress forums without any luck. This seems like a major problem with the usefulness of custom post types, there has to be a way to at least trick the built-in WordPress nav menus into thinking another page is the parent of the post type. Hopefully somebody can help figure this out!


    Gonna bump this for good measure…


    Unfortunately, custom post types are not meant to go into the permalink structure. That’s pretty much all there is to it.

    There is, however, a plugin! I haven’t tested it, but I think this answers your question?
