SEO Ultimate Silos (4 posts)

    I am trying to create silos using the SEO Ultimate plugin. I named my categories the same as my pages. Unfortunately, when I click on the category, the matching page does not appear. I get the first post in the category instead. I also changed the permalink setting to /%category%/%postname%/. I also dragged the siloed categories widget.

    I am sure that a setting is off, but I can't figure it out.

    This is done in err will confuse WP, use distinctly unique categories, tags, and page/posts slugs/titles.

    Go to SEO > Miscellaneous > Permalink Tweaker > URL Conflict Resolution and select "page" instead of "term archive"

    John:

    Thanks for your help. You and Jeffrey have the best SEO blog anywhere. You guys are my heroes. How is Jeffrey doing after the accident? It sounded pretty ugly. I hope he is OK.

    re: SEO Ultimate: The setting is correct. Maybe I didn't describe the issue well.

    The pages/categories are showing up in the menu on my sidebar as advertised. The problem is that the posts do not. When I click on the category, the page shows up just fine. The problem is that the same categories still appear in the menu, the posts do not.

    I am testing this on my wife's website www_dot_felinecerebellarhypoplasia_dot_com. I need to make this work before I roll it out for commercial sites.

    Also, is there any limitation as to the number of posts or categories that show up in single nav menu?
