    Strip the category base (usually /category/) from the category URL.

    This doesn't work. after the 1.2.8.1 update

    it every category shows 404 now. Can you help?

    sigh I shouldn't have updated.

    Somehow in my dashboard:
    settings>permalinks

    my general settings was changed. it said: /page/%category%/%postname%/

    instead of only: /%category%/%postname%/

    I removed /page

    and the website was back to normal.

    Hope this helps...

    Try unchecking the 'strip catergory' box, then ticking it and saving again.

    found a solution.

    so basically, If you are using a multisite, don't use "category strip" from Yoast. It just gives you a headache.

    1.check off "category strip"
    2. go to permalinks, and update as this blog says
    http://praveenlobo.com/techblog/how-to-remove-the-blog-slug-from-the-permalinksurl-in-wordpress-multisite-installation-without-a-plugin/

    3. download http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/no-category-base-wpml/
    4. activate the plugin and you will live in peace.
