WP Category Permalink

Allows manual selection of a 'main' category for each post for nicer permalinks and better SEO. Pro version adds custom post type support.

This plugin allows you to select a main category (or taxonomy) for your posts for nicer permalinks and SEO.

Select a category for your permalink. A custom structure such as /%category%/%postname%/ should be usually chosen for your permalinks. By default, this %category% is selected automatically (using the lowest ID) in the case your post is assigned to more than one category. This plugin will let you pick the category of your choice from the 'Post Edit' page. The chosen category is shown in bold on the 'Posts List' page and the 'Post Edit' page.

Post list. Below the title, you will see the permalink currently set-up for this entry. If a heart is present, it means that the category (or taxonomy) has been picked up.

PRO Version. Features added based on requests from users are made available in the Pro version. For now, the Pro adds support for custom post type and custom taxonomy support (gallery plugins or themes, WooCommerce, etc). Learn more on http://apps.meow.fr/wp-category-permalink/.

Breadcrumbs. They have their own way of working and can't be supported automatically by default because they are created by specific themes or plugins. If you encounter issues with breadcrumbs, please say so in the Support Threads and let's see how we can make it work.
