Support » Plugin: Remove Category URL » Want to try to remove category from my urls

  • Before I do this I want to make sure I don’t create a massive problem for myself.

    I want to remove category but want to make sure I don’t get hundreds of 404’s after.

    How does this work? I have %category%%postname% structure.

    Also what if I have links built to these posts. Do I loose those?

    Thank you,
    Regards,
    Armands

  • Hello.

    The plugin removes the word “category” from the category URL, but not from the post URL. The post does not contain the word “category”. At the same time, the plugin redirects old category permalinks to the new ones (301 redirect).

    So if the category is renamed, does it mean it won’t be removed?

    We don’t quite understand each other.
    If you are worried, I would advise you to create a copy of your site and try it out.
