This is a fix of Top Level Categories plugin for WordPress 3.1. and above.
This is a fix of Top Level Category plugin for WordPress 3.1. and further versions. It's purpose is to provide the same behavior as the original plugin, but in new WordPress versions.
The Top Level Categories plugin allows you to remove the prefix before the URL to your category page. For example, instead of http://foliovision.com/category/work, you can use http://foliovision.com/work for the address of "work" category. WordPress doesn't allow you to have a blank prefix for categories (they insert
category/ before the name), this plugin works around that restriction.
This plugin works also if you have a permalink structure like %postname% or %category%/%postname% -- this wasn't possible in the original version. However, this feature might not work properly for child categories at this point. Test carefully!
