      Please ignore / remove / delete my previous comment, I was working between a test site and a live site so its no wonder updating the test site did not affect the live site!

      Works like a dream, thanks for the swift response and sorry for the doh! moment

    I added the function script into the child theme and it’s changed the slug but the single location pages are coming back with “page not found”.

    Hi, I’ve used the script but I had some strange behaviour.
    – the pages i created where not reachable (404)
    – when i tried to edit a post from the admin panel i got the message that I was not allow to edit that type of post
    – when I reloaded the page the plug in was no more present in the sidebar (like wordpress disable it)

    Could you please help me?
    Thank you

    It’s possible to change the stores slug URL store name to have it with different languages?
    With WPML I tried to do this, but it doesn’t work. Only works the first condition:

    add_filter( ‘register_post_type_args’, ‘wpse247328_register_post_type_args’, 10, 2 );
    function wpse247328_register_post_type_args( $args, $post_type ) {

    if ( ‘stores’ === $post_type && ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE==’en’ ) {
    $args[‘rewrite’][‘slug’] = ‘auto-repair’;
    if ( ‘stores’ === $post_type && ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE==’es’ ) {
    $args[‘rewrite’][‘slug’] = ‘taller-coche’;
    if ( ‘stores’ === $post_type && ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE==’it’ ) {
    $args[‘rewrite’][‘slug’] = ‘autofficina’;

    return $args;
