Category base the same as permalink folder? (5 posts)

    I am using iFilosofo Home Page Control plugin. My blog is located under http://www.mydomain.com/blog/

    I would like to have my category base to be set to /blog/, too (instead of the default /category/).

    Is there any way to accomplish this in WP2.0.5?

    Not without altering core WP files. (Search, it has been posted in the forum)
    And if you will ever end up up with a Page that has the same title as one of your categories... everything will break :(
    [that's the reason it has to be something - not necessarily "category" - in the permalink structure]

    Thanks for the super-fast reply, Moshu! :)

    Regarding...

    Not without altering core WP files. (Search, it has been posted in the forum)

    I searched before posting. The only relevant thread was about WP1.5. I wasn't sure if WP2.0+ is any different with this regard.

    ... everything will break :(

    Thanks for the warning! Does it mean the entire installation will burn to ashes and it won't be possible to undo the problem, or the WP will simply stop working until the Page is renamed?

    I've never tried :)
    That's what some gurus say.

    Bump... could someone please tell me how to hack WP to have the category base identical to my blog folder, on WP 2.0+? The solution I found via searh was for WP 1.5. Thanks! :)
