Task: New Taxonomies Powers

Very important when changing slugs for custom types:

You can reset the permalink array by going to the permalinks tab in wp-admin and simply re-saving the permalink structure. Navigate to: WordPress Dashboard → Settings → Permalinks: Click “Save Changes”.

My permalink structure:

Voucher list: `/v/blumenpapa-at/`
Shop groups have: `/k/buerobedarf-bueromoebel`

Note: If registering a post type inside of a plugin, call flush_rewrite_rules() in your activation and deactivation hook (see Flushing Rewrite on Activation below). If flush_rewrite_rules() is not used, then you will have to manually go to Settings > Permalinks and refresh your permalink structure before your custom post type will show the correct structure » source

This trick is not working:

And there it is - the trick! Here it goes: if you create a page that has exactly the same permalink, that page will be used as a page for shop group.

If there is no page like that, generic shop group will be shown. That shop group can display rudimentary text from description (for which we can even make a visual content edior), but it can not include nothing more advanced, like featured image, SEO metas, etc.

Note: NOT WORKING!

Another take with extra fields in custom taxonomies

At the minimum, we have two fields:

  1. Information about attached page.
  2. We have to save a icon for a shop group

We have a problem: Custom taxonomies extra fields Adding Custom Meta Fields to Taxonomies

Valid solution - great news!
