When we set permalink as Post name and go to wordpress any default post Like “Testing 123″ single page its link looks like this


Now i when we change our permalink to Custom Structure and set value like %category%/%postname%, the link looks like this


testing is my category slug

Now the main part of my question is

I make a plugin where i create a post type foo_articles and custom taxonomy foo_categories

Its work perfectly. When i click on a category its link looks like this


and when i click on an article for a single page, its link looks like this


foo_articles is my post type and its a change able

Now my question is how can i set links that when a user set permalinks Custom Structure and set value like %category%/%postname% my link also change like above default post single page.

Here is custom post type code:

add_action('init', 'foo_articles');
function foo_articles() {
    $foo_slug = 'foo_articles';
    $foo_slug = get_option('foo_plugin_slug');
    $labels = array(
        'name'                  =>  __('Foo', 'fff'),
        'singular_name'         =>  __('Foo', 'fff'),
        'all_items'             =>  __('Articles', 'fff'),
        'add_new'               =>  __('New Article', 'fff'),

        'not_found_in_trash'    =>  __('Nothing found in Trash', 'fff'),
        'parent_item_colon'     =>  ''
    $foo_rewrite = array(

    register_post_type( 'foo_articles' , $args );
add_action( 'init', 'foo_taxonomies', 0 );
// Article taxonamy
function foo_taxonomies() {
    // Add new taxonomy, make it hierarchical (like categories)
    $labels = array(
        'name'              =>  __( 'Article Category', 'fff'),
        'singular_name'     =>  __( 'Article Category', 'fff' ),
        'search_items'      =>  __( 'Search Article Category', 'fff' ),

        'rewrite'           =>  array( 'slug' => 'foo_category', 'with_front' => true )

Note: i change my post type slug by plugin settings and its option_name is foo_plugin_slug (its a client idea)

So please tell me how can i do this. Is there any hook or filter or htaccess code
