Support » Fixing WordPress » Version 3.1 issue with custom permalinks!

  • Hello,

    After i upgraded to the version 3.1 custom permalinks dont work anymore!
    All my category from domain.tld/category-name redirect to domain.tld/category/category-name.
    I used .htaccess code: RewriteRule ^category/(.+)$ http://www.domain.tld/$1 [R=301,L]
    but dosn`t working!
    Till i upgrade to the wordpress 3.1 my permalinks was /%postname%/ and when i load category pages is redirect me to some posts from that category not to category name to see all posts. But when i change the permalink to /%category%/%postname%/ all is fine but with “category” till category name and i don`t this.
    I want to be like until i upgrade to the wordpress 3.1 domain.tld/category-name, not linke now domain.tld/category/category-name!

    How can i make this? How can i make to get domain.tld/category-name?
    How can i fix this issue with custom permalinks?
    Please someone help me!
    Thank you!

  • delete your wp .htaccess
    re-generate the .htaccess
    dashboard – settings – permalinks

    That plugin fix appears to be specific to Windows servers. Do links work if you revert to the default permalink structure?

    It is work my permalinks when it is /%category%/%postname%/ but is working with prefix “category”, ex: domain.tld/category/category-name but when i change the permalink to /%postname%/, how was till i upgrade to version 3.1, is not working! When the permalink is /%postname%/ and i load the category-name is apppear some post from that category, not the category-name to see all the posts from that category, ex:domain.tld/post-from-category.

    What can i do to have “domain.tld/category-name” with all the posts from that category?

    Thank you!

    Nobody helps me to fix this issue? :/
    Please someone help me to fix this!

    Thank you!

    Ok try this:

    1 – Install & activate this plug-in: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-no-category-base/

    2 – Go to your permalink settings, put it on one of the other options, like Default or Month and Name, and push save

    3 – Not sure if needed but I usually then open the site in a new tab, to check if the new setting worked, if it did -> step 4!

    4 – Go to your permalink settings again, put it back to how you had it originally, and save. (I use: /%category%/%postname%/)

    5 – Check if it worked, and let me know 🙂

    This should turn domain.tld/category/category-name back into domain.tld/category-name!

    Good luck.

    @teknoterror that did the trick for me.

    It’s not working for me anymore. After updating the system all the permalinks stopped working.

    I’m using both the No Category Base Plugin and /%category%/%postname%/

    Check it out:

    The page isn't redirecting properly

    Any help?

    Thanks.
