How to take category out of url?

Hi,

anyone know how to take the category name out of the ‘pretty’ permalink structure when viewing the category archive?

e.g.
By default - after I’ve customised the url structure - the category archive url will look like this:

www.mysite.com/category/category-name

I want the url to look like www.mysite.com/category-name

But, I want to keep the custom url structure for single post display i.e. I still want single post url to look like this:

www.mysite.com/category-name/post-title

anyone know how to do this?

Thanks aaron,

That did the trick!

I never found a reliable solution but maybe someone has come up with one since then: http://www.google.com/search?q=remove+category+base+wordpress :slight_smile:

I used the Top Level Categories plugin on a couple projects two or three versions ago. It says it is compatible with the current 3.0.x branch.
