FAQ

Why should I use this plugin?

Use this plugin if you want to get rid of WordPress’ “Category base” completely. The normal behaviour of WordPress is to add ‘/category’ to your category permalinks if you leave “/category” blank in the Permalink settings. So your category links look like mydomain.com/category/my-category/. With this plugin your category links will look like mydomain.com/my-category/ (or mydomain.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 blogs 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 mydomain.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.

The plugin has been uninstalled, but the slug /category/ did not reappear why?

A particular installation does not allow the rewrite feature in disabling the plugin. Try after disabling the plugin, save permanent links again.

Method not working anymore

getyoowoo

Nice coded but the result is exactly the same as when you set a '.' as category slug. It looks nice at first but when you look closer... Pagination is broken so these days this is useless I'm afraid.
