I have a section that has multiple entry types. I would like to use kebab-style url segments in the URL format. I can get the articles to serve kebab URIs using this for the section's Entry URL Format:


However, this will not call the template when making the page call — needs to be:


So, how do you set things up to have the best of both worlds: kebab'd url segments and working templates?

You could have a try with dynamic routing, where you map a URL (or a url pattern) to a specific template.

Dynamic routes take priority over template paths.

If I misunderstood you, can you give an example as to what the URL is for a specific entry compared to what you need it to be?

  • I had tried a few stabs at dynamic routing but must had an error in the regex. Now, with the regex set to our-firm/(?P<type>[^\/]+)/(?P<slug>[^\/]+) it's calling up the template. So, in the routes.php, it's 'our-firm/(?P<type>[^\/]+)/(?P<slug>[^/]+)' => 'path-to/template' which calls the right template when visiting /our-firm/kebabed-entry-type-name/url-slug. Thanks for encouraging me to revisit the approach. I'm running into an issue where the page is reporting the variable 'slug' does not exist, but as soon as I figure out the error, I'll fix the question here. Jul 19, 2017 at 16:10
  • Note, the template does set the entry with {% set entry = craft.entries.section('mySectionHandle').slug(slug).first() %} per the method outlined here: craftcms.stackexchange.com/questions/8209/… Jul 19, 2017 at 16:15
