Wordpress Post URL path

I want to control my wordpress post url path.

I would like it to be as below...

http://www.mydomaincom/about-us/latest-news/article-slug

Under settings > reading I have set my post page to "Latest News"

and my  "Latest News" is a child of the "About Us" page.

My permalinks is set to: /%category%/%postname%/

Why is the article url showing as

http://www.mydomaincom/latest-news/article-slug

and not

http://www.mydomaincom/about-us/latest-news/article-slug

i.e. It's missing "about-us/" in the url path?

On the post, what category are you assigning to the post? Parent Category and Child Category? Make sure to only assign the  child category to the post.

Thanks for the reply. Oh I see. I just need to create a parent category with the slug "about-us". It works however I already have a page with the slug "about-us". The page seems to overwrite the archive page. Is this what happens?

You're seeing a conflict between using the same name for both a category and page. I'm fairly certain a category & page cannot share a slug, unless you employ a hack of some sort.

You may want to slightly change the naming convention of either the page or category to be "about" or "aboutus" instead of "about us".
