WordPress SEO by Yoast
[resolved] Category XML 404 | Blog Slug | Multisite (2 posts)

    Yoast 1.2.8.4
    Multisite
    Wordpress 3.4.2
    -------------------
    Problem = "Category Strip" messes up Multisite categories.=> 404.

    Usually, I fixed category error by toggling "on" "off" category strip.
    Now, even if I turn it off, it doesn't add "category" in the title. (can't go back)

    and Category XML gives 404 as it indexes http://www.abc.com/categorynames

    How can you get rid of blog slug ? or add blog slug like previous Yoast versions??

    found a solution.

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

    1.check off "category strip"
    2. go to permalinks, and update as this blog says

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