  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting the support, and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    You don’t have to automate this as WordPress already has a setting on adding category names in the permalink structure.

    Please head over to your WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks and add the %category% shortcode before the post name.
    Please see video screencast:

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    what happens with 1) after I make the change through wordpress ? Is there an automatic redirection added by WordPress or rankmath? i am pretty sure WordPress doesn’t automatically add a redirection to the old URLs. If rankmath doesn’t do that then I am left with 600 404s.


    I am sorry but you will have create a redirect for each post if you make such a permalink change. It is not possible to perform this particular redirection, even with regex, as the category does not exist in the original URL.

    Thank you.
