How to replace custom post type slug with custom field value by maintaining a specific URL structure?


I want to replace a custom post type slug with custom field value.

I’ve used the below code for that:

add_rewrite_tag( '%employeetype%', 'our-team/([^/]+)' );
add_filter( 'post_type_link', function( $url, $post ){
    if ( 'developer' === $post->post_type ) {
        $customSlug = get_post_meta( $post->ID, 'employee_type', TRUE ) ? get_post_meta( $post->ID, 'employee_type', TRUE ) : 'developers'; // can be two vales develeopers and staff
        $url = str_replace( '%employeetype%', 'our-team/'.$customSlug, $url );
    return $url;
}, 10, 2 );

I also want to maintain the below pages: – this page gives 404 – this page gives 404 (achieved with above code) works fine

Can we do anything here to achieve this? Thanks.
