    Hi - I have this option ticked and have the same problem.

    A bit more information.

    If I go into the wordpress permalinks tab and change to 'default', all the links show the correct links except for for the category links. So using the example above the post links correctly showed

    http://www.mashgeek.com/?p=1234

    Yet the category would not show the default format, instead it still shows:

    http://www.mashgeek.com/windows/

    I actually (by chance) got this working by doing this:

    1. Untick the category base option and save
    2. Change the permalink type on the wordpress tab to default and save
    3. Change the permalink type on the wordpress tab to 'postname' and save
    4. Re-tick the category base option and save

    I got it working by deactivating and then activating the plugin. :-)

    But we need a permanent solution to this.

    I can confirm this is happening to me to.

    It happens when I post a "New Post" it breaks the category links.

    If you have to post a new post, post it then go to the WordPress SEO setting and selected "Permalinks" - Re save permalinks and it will fix it.

    But as others are saying this needs to be fixed asap I have scheduled posts whilst I am away.

    Thanks
    Chris

    Also there was an update from "WP No Category Base" plugin today on one of my other sites. So I assume Yoast plugin will need looking at too.
