I have a problem with permalink structure & breadcrumbs on my woocommerce pages… I have 2 questions:
I have set permalinks as “shop base with category” like this: /winkel/%product_cat%/
BUT… When I just view the product category (which are also my main menu items) I don’t get the shop base…
The permalink should be /winkel/usb but instead it shows /product-category/usb
Only when a single product is clicked it shows correctly as /winkel/usb/name-of-product
How can I achieve that it show /winkel/real-product-category-name instead of /product-category/usb??
I don’t like to set Woocommerce as “show products” because then I have all my products on one page and this does not look clean but chaotic for my visitors.
I also don’t like to set Woocommerce settings as “show categories”.
I only want them to be able to navigate via the main menu.
That’s why my main menu has the different product categories so visitors can choose and see the structure.
The only way they can see the complete shop page (categories or all products) is when they click the link “winkel” (which means shop) in the breadcrumb display home > WINKEL > category…
So… I think the best is to remove the shop link from my breadcrumbs and show it as black text like the home button in these breadcrumbs…
How can I achieve this? Or do you think there might be a better way to do it? Also should still be SEO friendly and simple for my visitors to know where they are on my website…
Thanks in advance!!
