Hopefully I can explain this correctly as I'm having trouble wrapping my head around it...

I'm building a real estate Web site using WordPress as the CMS. The original plan was to have the listings URL be domain.com/whatever, no matter if its a City, a Park or any other category. So it'd be, domain.com/city-name (all the listings in that city) or domain.com/park-name (all the listings near that park). This is obviously for SEO purposes.

But, I want to have breadcrumbs as well, so in WordPress I have to set it up as domain.com/city-name/park-name so that the breadcrumbs show up properly, but I what I really want is JUST domain.com/park-name, even though the specific property is categorized under that city name and under that park.

Is there a way to achieve this? Have both properly formatted breadcrumbs, for example State > City > Park > Property Name while only showing the URL as domain.com/state or domain.com/city or domain.com/park for the listings? More examples:

State Real Estate would be domain.com/state and not domain.com/properties/state
State > City Real Estate would be domain.com/city and not domain.com/properties/state/city
State > City > Park Real Estate would be domain.com/park and not domain.com/properties/state/city/park

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Pelana, have you looked into this option?

I think that can be the solution you're after.

You can set up your permalinks under permalinks settings as: /%category%/%postname%
And with help of the above plugin you can remove the category slug.

That keeps the breadcrumb trail intact, it will still contain the city name and your posts can be accessed under domain.com/park-name

On first glance I think that plugin makes it possible for you.

I love that pretty much any Wordpress problem you might have, there's almost always a plug-in solution!
