Changing the listings_category slug


Is it possible to change the listings_category slug to something else that is neater, such as

business_listing, listing, or even just removing that altogether?

    The portion of of the plugin that sets this is in the core.php

         * Create the default Directory pages.
         * @return void
        function create_default_pages() {
            /* Create neccasary pages */
            $directory_page = $this->get_page_by_meta( 'listings' );
            if ( !$directory_page || 0 >= $directory_page->ID ) {
                $current_user = wp_get_current_user();
                /* Construct args for the new post */
                $args = array(
                    'post_title'     => 'Listings',
                    'post_status'    => 'publish',
                    'post_author'    => $current_user->ID,
                    'post_type'      => 'page',
                    'ping_status'    => 'closed',
                    'comment_status' => 'closed'
                $parent_id = wp_insert_post( $args );
                add_post_meta( $parent_id, "directory_page", "listings" );

    the function starts on line 335. I am not sure if it will work to change this, as I think it is tied in to the post type... but you, sir, are more code savvy than I, so I imagine you will know how to handle that :slight_smile:

    You could however use an .htaccess rule to rewrite 'listings' to something else.

    Let me know if this is helpful! I'll leave open just incase :slight_smile:
