Hi.. I have a weird technical issue ..
permalinks are set to /%category%/%postname%/
I am using the WP No Category Base plugin which takes the "category" out of the permalink.. all good...
BUT problem is.. using the drop-down category widget on my sidebar..clicking the categories in the dropdown list goes to the right category pages whether they are to hierarchy or sub-category but
some are showing as the default permalink structure.. ie: go to my site http://homeremedieslog.com.. then use category dropdown top right sidebar and click on the top category "alternative remedies" and you will see it shows as http://homeremedieslog.com/?cat=1186 but it should be showing as http://homeremedieslog.com/alternative-medicines/. Some of the categories from the dropdown list show the correct permalink structure and some don't... it's a complete mystery and I cant work out how to fix it.
I have tried a number of things to fix this with no luck
reset permalinks from .htaccess , server database settings and just wp-admin.. didnt help
deactivated plugins.. made no diff
tried diff themes to see if it was a theme thing.. no
tried different computers, different browers etc.. no
I am stuck..
any help would be much appreciated..plz???.. thanks
