Support » Fixing WordPress » Category Drop-Down Menu Shows WRONG permalink structure

  • 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 then use category dropdown top right sidebar and click on the top category “alternative remedies” and you will see it shows as but it should be showing as 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

  • update: I notice if the drop-down category menu widget is set to a list and the drop-down bit is not activated ..the problem goes away…

    BUT I cant have it like that as the list is too long…

    so I still need to fix this…anybody?

    Same issue. Drop down list leads to “?cat=#” url rather than the permalink. all other category references (within post, list, etc) go to the proper permalink url (e.g /category/news).

    doesn’t seem to be a solution anywhere. anyone?
