No Category Base (WPML) WordPress Plugin

Category permalinks are an ugly mess. This plugin cleans up the base of category URLs for all categories, tags, and custom taxonomies. No Category Base (WPML) WordPress Plugin removes the mandatory ‘/category’ from your category permalinks. Every link to a category page will work also without the prefix ‘/category’. It removes ‘/category’ from your category permalinks everywhere: 

  • in the site, 
  • in RSS feeds, 
  • all kinds of pagination and feeds. 

It also works with custom post types and custom taxonomies. By using this plugin you can set up a website with fully translated categories and subcategories in different languages without getting invalid URLs. This plugin is fully compatible with WPML, the WordPress Multilanguage Plugin. This plugin also provides options to remove the ‘tag’ base and/or remove parent categories from child category permalinks, all without breaking existing links. 

It can also automate the creation of redirects for you, to prevent 404 errors when using the removed permalink structures. Once you’ve activated the plugin, it automatically removes the base from your category URLs. WPML will take care of translating those links to different languages, but it cannot translate that base itself. So, this is what this very simple plugin does: it gets rid of that base by working with WPML and removing it from permalinks, so you don’t lose rankings for your existing pages. 

This is a must-have plugin if you’re a WPML user, it just works. It also improves usability by creating shorter and more readable links. In case you have a WordPress WooCommerce website and need to remove the ‘category’ word from your product links, then you’re in the right place. No Category Base (WPML) WordPress Plugin removes /category/ from your category permalinks without having to manually update all of the links personally, but only those linked with WooCommerce products. Accessible for WPML users.
