No setup needed. Just activate plugin.

I’m having issues with categories when I’m using %postname% permalink structure

Make sure your categories have unique slugs – watch out for post/pages with the same slugs. Normally WordPress uses the category prefix to distinguish page from a category, but with this plugin you need to make sure the slugs are unique, otherwise some pages might turn up instead of categories.
