Hierarchical Post Settings

hierarchical post attributes modalHierarchical

Used to configured your Custom Post Type to allow the post_parent field in wp_posts. This allows you to nest posts under other posts, like Pages allows. Check this option to enable the post_parent field and the Hierarchical Post Attributes modal. Uncheck this option to not allow use of the field or the modal.

The following options for the Parent Labels will show if you select this option and this will add the Page Attributes modal to the Custom Post Type for managing Post Parents and Page Order.

If you want a plugin that makes it easy to manage Hierarchical Post Types in a visual way, check out Nested Pages.

Label: Parent <post-type>

Updates the label in the Hierarchical Post Attributes modal, specifically the label for the drop-down list of Parent Post Types.

Label: Parent

Updates the label in the Hierarchical Post Attributes modal, changing the label for the modal itself.

Questions

  • How do I change the URL Structure for Individual Posts to Match Taxonomy Terms?

    By default WordPress will do the following for your custom post types: post-type/post-type-slug/
    For your Custom Taxonomy it will map it to: taxonomy-type/taxonomy-term/

    You can customize these settings in Pods using the Rewrite, Custom Rewrite Slug and Rewrite with Front options under Advanced Options when editing your Pod. These correlate to the same parameter settings for rewrite from the register_post_type function in WordPress:
    https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/register_post_type/

    You can further customize these values using other plugins like Beautiful Taxonomy Filters or Custom Post Type Permalinks if you’re wanting to put the taxonomy ‘term’ into the slug for the individual item, but that is beyond the capabilities or scope of Pods. We support the default methods, though you can get creative with the rewrite url options mentioned above, but the WP Hierarchy still has to be ‘obeyed’ or you have to have a plugin that recognizes and ‘re-arranges’ the URL’s for SEO practices but not necessarily for organization.
