Hi there,

I have a CPT of of Explore with a taxonomy assigned to it > Explore > Nature > Post

However, I can't get the category to show in the URL. It just shows CPT > Post

When adding a normal WordPress post, it shows the full URL including the categories the post is in, in order, before the actual post name

I've tried adding /%category%/%postname%/ in the WordPress > Permalink settings

Is there some reason why it's not working?

Many thanks
