I have a gallery which is categorised. The gallery is a Structure section where the user adds an entry and then assigns it to a category - all good.

At the moment, when clicking on an entry title the URL is mysite.com/gallery/entry-slug but I would like it to be mysite.com/gallery/category-name/entry-slug.

I've looked around the Docs and StackExchange for a simple answer (assuming it would just be the addition of a tag) but the solutions seem very convoluted and way outside my grasp of understanding.

Any help appreciated

A Categories field can be related to several categories. So you'll either need to limit your Category field to a single Category relationship or you'll need to make some assumption in how you build your URL as to which category will appear in the URL. The simplest assumption to make will be that you will always return the first category for your URL.

Entry URL Format in the Section Settings:


Entry Page URL:


In the Entry URL Format setting above, you are telling your slug to return the slug of the first item in your array of categories using this line: {categories.first().slug} where categories is the handle of your Categories Relations field.

You may also want to ensure your Categories Relations field is required.

  • For Craft 3, the Entry URL Format should use the new ElementQuery method .one(), as: gallery/{categories.one().slug}/{slug} Nov 6, 2018 at 22:00
