Remove parent categories from page permalinks

  • I want to remove parent categories from page permalinks. For example, instead of a page permalink being http://www.wordpress.org/parent_page/child_page. I want to make it http://www.wordpress.org/child_page.

    This “how to” has been asked a few times with no direct answer. Also, I manage a website that have >100 pages so a plugin like “Custom Permalinks” won’t do me justice. Perhaps a plugin that would eliminate the parent in page permalinks automatically would be better.

    Does anyone have a straight forward answer for removing parent categories from pages (not posts)?

    Thanks!

    I wonder how many times this same question can be ignored.

    Its been asked a bunch of times now

    Yes, it has. I’m usually a very persistant “googler” and don’t post questions because I KNOW there is an answer out there. But this was an extremely rare case.

    PLEASE, IF YOU HAVE A DIRECT ANSWER, PLEASE POST.

    p.s. I ended up using the Custom Permalinks plugin and had to manually change the permalink for ~200 pages.
