Hi everyone. I’m having an issue with my site hierarchy that affects my breadcrumbs and url query.
/============================= BACKGROUND INFO
i am using wordpress and have an elementor theme (so my breadcrumbs are from the elementor pro breadcrumbs widget)
I would like the following hierarchy (which I have included a flowchart for)
At the moment to achieve this I have the following pages:
Page for each post type / category (which displays all posts in that category)
I also have used the CPT UI (custom post types) to create a new post type for each of my categories (i.e. for each homepage.com/blog/post-type I have a CPT). On the screenshot these are called Finance guide posts, car review posts, lender / dealership posts / latest news posts.
/============================= THE PROBLEM
Here is the problem i am facing:
For my category / post type pages, my breadcrumbs display correctly as follows:
Home / Blog / Category
(url is homepage.com/blog/category)
On this page i display posts of that category type, but when I click the post the breadcrumbs look like this (incorrectly):
Home / Post title
Even though the url reads
I would like the breadcrumbs to reflect the url query i.e. it should be as follows:
Home / blog / category / postname
I have messed around with parent / child pages etc for ages and still cannot solve this. I think if you know what you are doing it is an easy fix, but i am new to wordpress and don’t know what i’m doing!
if you can solve it let me know. Would also really love a short explanation of how you solved it, and any general guidance about wordpress site architecture would be appreciated (for example if there’s a more slick way to achieve the architecture I want / whether it is suitable for SEO)
