[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Remove category base overrides existing pages (3 posts)

    Hi all,

    I have a question about the WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin. I've been searching for the answer for quite a while, but I haven't been able to find it.

    When I check the 'Remove category base from URL'-button, category url's are rewritten from /category/boats/ to /boats/, that's a good thing.

    But for some categories, there is a page with the same name, so /boats/ actually is a page. Because of the 'Remove category base' function, the category overrides the page, so: the page isn't visible anymore: /boats/ now shows the category. The problem is i actually need to show the page instead of the category.

    Does anybody now how to solve this issue? Thanks in advance!

    This page for example shows a category, where it should show a page.

    I know this answer will be of very little use to you both, but this is the expected behaviour of WordPress.
