WordPress: Problems with CPT, category and nice permalinks

I set up a Custom Post Type called "projects" and have an archive-projects.php and single-projects.php that work fine. $args = array( 'label' => 'Projects', 'public' => true, 'show_in_nav_menus' => true, 'has_archive' => true, 'supports' => array('title', 'editor', 'thumbnail'), 'taxonomies' => array('category', 'post_tag',), 'rewrite' => array('slug' => 'projects'), 'with_front' => true, ); register_post_type('projects', $args); My aim is to filter projects in archive-projects.php or somewhere else by category. Normally I would use the category-function of WP, correct? So I set up categories associated to projects like cat1, cat2 etc. However, when I call the categories from the backend they show the URL /category/cat1/ I can change this in settings/permalinks to any word but there are several problems: I cannot change the category base to "projects" I belive there is a conflict with the CPT called "projects" the link to the categories calls the category.php not the category-projects.php in category.php no projects are found. I would need to set up a new query whick makes no sense Is there a way to achieve a proper display and nice permalinks for projects and categories like /projects/project1/ and /projects/cat1/ ? My approach so far is to set up a custom ACF-Field for the projects to categorize these. So I can show categories with an URL like /projects/?cat=cat1 in the archive-projects.php by manipulating the query according to the parameter. This works fine but I would prefer to have a nice URL like /projects/cat1/ Perhaps I can do this with rewrite? Which approach is best and how could I proceed? Thanks for help in advance!
