A WordPress plugin to remove the base category, e.g. the /category/, folder from your category links. 301 Redirects are added for old links.
This plugin will remove the /category/ base directory that WordPress adds to category links. It’ll also go beyond that and automatically 301 redirect the old /category/ links to the new, pathless category link.
Once installed, the plugin will automatically change all your category links on the website. You do not need to modify any of your WordPress themes or code.
There is also an admin panel that will let you enable/disable 301 redirects, as well as change the text to remove from the category link.
