No Category Base (WPML)

This plugin removes the mandatory 'Category Base' from your category permalinks. It's compatible with WPML.

Why should I use this plugin?

Use this plugin if you want to get rid of WordPress' "Category base" completely. The normal behavior of WordPress is to add '/category' to your category permalinks if you leave "Category base" blank in the Permalink settings. So your category links look like 'mysite.com/category/my-category/'. With this plugin your category links will look like 'mysite.com/my-category/' (or 'mysite.com/my-category/sub-category/' in case of sub categories).

Will it break any other plugins?

As far as I can tell, no. I have been using this on several site for a while and it doesn't break anything.

Won't this conflict with pages?

Simply don't have a page and category with the same slug. Even if they do have the same slug it won't break anything, just the category will get priority (Say if a category and page are both 'xyz' then 'mysite.com/xyz/' will give you the category). This can have an useful side-effect. Suppose you have a category 'news', you can add a page 'news' which will show up in the page navigation but will show the 'news' category.

Do I need WPML to use it?

No, you can use this plugin without having WPML installed.

Can you add a feature X?

Just ask on the support forum. If its useful enough and I have time for it, sure.

I get 404 errors when I deactivate the plugin. What can I do?

When you deactivate the plugin, you need to tell WordPress to refresh its permalink rules. This is easy to do.

Go to Settings -> Permalinks and then click on Save Changes.
