So basically I have been trying to make my permalinks look like this:


Rather than what has the potential to become this:


Users have the ability to create posts on the front end that are children of other posts. This can go on and on and I don't want the permalinks to be insanely long.

I was able to remove all parent post names from the permalink using the code below. However, this doesn't work if someone creates a post name that already exists.

I would like to be able to change the permalink to include the post id in it so this doesn't happen but I can't figure it out. I appreciate any help!

Here is the code:

function Recipes() {

$labels = array(
'name'                  => _x( 'Recipes', 'Post Type Recipes', 'recipes' ),
'singular_name'         => _x( 'Recipe', 'Post Type Singular Name', 'Recipe' ),
'menu_name'             => __( 'Recipes', 'recipes' ),
'name_admin_bar'        => __( 'Recipes', 'recipes' ),
'archives'              => __( 'Recipes Archives', 'recipes' ),
'parent_item_colon'     => __( 'Parent Recipe', 'recipes' ),
'all_items'             => __( 'All Recipes', 'recipes' ),
'add_new_item'          => __( 'Add New Recipe', 'recipes' ),
'add_new'               => __( 'Add Recipe', 'recipes' ),
'new_item'              => __( 'New Recipe', 'recipes' ),
'edit_item'             => __( 'Edit Recipe', 'recipes' ),
'update_item'           => __( 'Update Recipe', 'recipes' ),
'view_item'             => __( 'View Recipe', 'recipes' ),
'search_items'          => __( 'Search Recipes', 'recipes' ),
$args = array(
'label'                 => __( 'Recipes', 'Recipes' ),

register_post_type( 'recipes', $args );



add_action( 'init', 'Recipes', 0 );

function bvt_recipes_flatten_hierarchies( $post_link, $post ) {
    if ( 'recipes' != $post->post_type ) {
        return $post_link;
    $uri = '';
    foreach ( $post->ancestors as $parent ) {
        $uri = get_post( $parent )->post_name . "/" . $uri;

    return str_replace( $uri, '', $post_link );
add_filter( 'post_type_link', 'bvt_recipes_flatten_hierarchies', 10, 2 );

I am currently working on my wordpress site and have started to use a timeline. There are next/previous buttons in the post, but I want them to display the post title instead of Next/Previous. I have looked over the wordpress code for this, but the dev is using non-standard code to achieve it.

Could somebody take a look at the code and tell me what I need to change.

<div class="clearfix"></div>
            <div class="timeline-info">
                <div class="timeline-content">
                    $content =  preg_replace ('#<embed(.*?)>(.*)#is', ' ', get_the_content(),1);
                    $content =  preg_replace ('@<iframe[^>]*?>.*?</iframe>@siu', ' ', $content,1);
                    $content =  preg_replace ('/<source\s+(.+?)>/i', ' ', $content,1);
                    $content =  preg_replace ('/\<object(.*)\<\/object\>/is', ' ', $content,1);
                    $content =  preg_replace ('#\[video\s*.*?\]#s', ' ', $content,1);
                    $content =  preg_replace ('#\[audio\s*.*?\]#s', ' ', $content,1);
                    $content =  preg_replace ('#\[/audio]#s', ' ', $content,1);
                    preg_match_all('#\bhttps?://[^\s()<>]+(?:\([\w\d]+\)|([^[:punct:]\s]|/))#', $content, $match);
                    foreach ($match[0] as $amatch) {
                        if(strpos($amatch,'') !== false){
                            $content = str_replace($amatch, '', $content);
                        }elseif(strpos($amatch,'') !== false){
                            $content = str_replace($amatch, '', $content);
                    $content = preg_replace('%<object.+?</object>%is', '', $content,1);
                    echo apply_filters('the_content',$content);?>
            $we_sevent_navi = get_option('wpex_navi');
                $wpex_navi_order = get_option('wpex_navi_order');
                $preevtrsl = get_option('wpex_text_prev')!='' ? get_option('wpex_text_prev') : esc_html__('Previous article','wp-timeline');
                $nextevtrsl = get_option('wpex_text_next')!='' ? get_option('wpex_text_next') : esc_html__('Next article','wp-timeline');
                if($wpex_navi_order!='ct_order'){ ?>
                    <div class="timeline-navigation defa">
                        <div class="next-timeline">
                            <?php next_post_link('%link', $nextevtrsl) ?>
                        <div class="previous-timeline">
