WP Category Permalink

Allows manual selection of a 'main' category for each post and WooCommerce product for better permalinks and SEO.

How are subcategories handled?

Subcategories keeps their parent's slug. For example, suppose you've chosen Pants > Jeans as your permalink, then your %product_cat% placeholder would be replaced with http://.../pants/jeans/.... The same goes for posts.

I've added a category while writing a post but I can't "Permalink" it. What should I do?

Update your post or product and you'll be able to "Permalink" it.

Where can I add or edit the product's slug?

Due to WordPress framework constraints, a product slug cannot be edited in "live" like a post slug. In case you want to add or edit a product slug - click on the "Screen Options" button appearing on the top right of the product editor page. Select the slug checkbox, and then add or edit your product's slug.

Why do my product's category permalink doesn't have a similar product permalink structure?

Make sure you've set your product category base to the same base as your product permalink base. For example, if your product permalink base is /shop/%product_cat%, then your product category base should be shop.

Do you support WooCommerce permalink without a fixed base, e.g. `http://www.example.com/%product_cat%/...` instead of `http://www.example.com/fixed-base/%product_cat%/...`?

Unfortunately, at the moment the plugin doesn't support this feature.

Do you support WooCommerce breadcrumbs?

Unfortunately, at the moment the plugin doesn't support this feature.

Can I contact you?

I donated, can I get rid of the donation button?

Of course. I don't like to see too many of those buttons neither ;) You can disable the donation buttons from all my plugins by adding this to your wp-config.php:
