Custom post type & taxonomy permalinks
Permalink Manager works out-of-the-box. It supports both native & custom content types. This includes pages, posts, categories, and custom post types/taxonomies.
Edit multiple permalinks at once
Firstly, go to the Permastructures section and adjust the permalink formats. By default, they will be used in new permalinks. You can also regenerate and apply them to old addresses.
Auto-redirect the old permalinks
You do not need to worry about 404 errors! After you update the permalinks, the old URLs will be redirected. It is enabled by default, but you can turn it off in the plugin settings.
You can also set-up extra URL redirects for each post, page, or term. They can be used either as shortlinks or URL aliases.

Add custom fields to WordPress permalinks

It works not only with native custom fields but also with 3rd party plugins. This includes Advanced Custom Fields, Toolset Types, and WooCommerce.
Duplicate slugs & permalink bases
Due to technical limitations, WordPress does not allow using the same permalink base for more than one content type. Permalink Manager allows you to overcome this problem and keep the same permalink format for multiple post types and taxonomies.
As long as you keep the permalinks unique as a whole, you can use exactly the same slug in multiple custom permalinks!
