When very static links are used, WordPress / Category / adds category URLs, for example http://www.example.com/category/sports. This / class / segment is called the base class. In this article, I will show you how to change or delete a WordPress class rule.
Many WordPress users prefer to completely remove the category base from their WordPress URLs. Some users believe that it has SEO benefits. I don’t think removing the category base has significant SEO benefits, and the Yoast of WordPress SEO plugin seems to agree with that. Previously, WordPress SEO had an option to disable the category base. However, Yoast removed this option from the plugin for new installations. Former users who enabled this option now see a notification that this option will be disabled.
On the other hand, there are some aesthetic advantages to removing the category or tag base from WordPress URLs. This makes URLs shorter and easier to remember.
To remove the WordPress category base, you need to install and activate the FV Top Level Categories plugin. Once activated, it will remove the category rule from your category URLs.
That’s it, I hope this article has helped you to change and remove WordPress category base.
