I have set my Permalinks structure to /%postname%/ and saved the changes but I still get /category/ appearing between my domain name and the post name, e.g.: "mydomain.com/category/postname. Even after I refresh the page the word "category" remains.
I was advised to delete the "htaccess" file so I deleted it but it made no difference.
How can I stop the word "category" from appearing in my permalinks?
