Remove Category or Tag Slug from url

A client asked me in ThemeForest comments that how to remove category slug in URL of WordPress blog installation. I researched a bit and found a very helpful article on I am writing short version below.

My client tried some plugins, but none of those worked for him and myself so do not waste your time on plugins and try this two steps trick given below. Go to permalink settings and follow these steps.

  1. Put “/%category%/%postname%/ ” in Custom Structure radio option field.
  2. Put a dot ” . ” in Category Base option field.


Save your permalink settings (do it twice if it doesn’t work), and it’s done.

It is working up to WordPress version 4.2.3 as I have checked.
