Strip Category Base causes Categories Menu items to redirect to homepage

  • Hi, I know strip category base is working. Cause, when I go to- Posts -> Categories (and click)-> view any of my_categories or my_sub categories, it doesn’t show- It does show- without any redirect to homepage.

    But my problem is- my main_menu has some Categories and Sub-Categories links. Every time i activate strip category base from Rank Math clicking my main_menu categories items redirect me to homepage. But if i disable strip category base my categories items of the main_menu works perfectly (but with categories word in the url, which i want to remove).

    Thanks for this amazing plugin.

  • Hi Abdullah,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    If you have hard-coded links in the menu, you may want to update them manually.

    Rank Math does redirect the old URLs to the new ones after you enable the strip category base but it sounds like it is not working in your case.

    Could you please link us to your website so we can check this in more detail?

    Thank you.
