Hello. Quick question here, and help is greatly appreciated. I just installed a new theme and noticed that when I visit the "blog" page, the following url permalink structure appears: domainname.com/category/blog". I would like to remove the "category" and just have the url be structured like this: "domainname.com/blog".
The same thing is happening when I visit the portfolio page to my site. "domainname.com/category/portfolio". I would like it to be "domainname.com/portfolio".
There are similar questions in this forum, but the ones I saw seemed to include advice on how to change the post url's themselves. I'm just wanting to change the page names themselves.
I guess what is confusing me is to why the "category" is showing, despite the fact I have my permalink structure set to /%postname%/ in my permalink settings. All of my portfolio and blog posts are showing without the "category", so why aren't the "blog" and "portfolio" pages showing this way?
Thanks again for any help.
