Strip Category Base does not seem to be working

  • Hi There,
    I have enabled Strip Category Base under General Setting. However, the category is still appearing in the URL. I don’t want that to happen. It was perfectly fine with Yoast SEO but Rank Math destroyed the site structure completely. That’s really bad, I believe that this zigzag SEO plan will surely hamper the ranking of the posts.

    Could you please look into the issue and help me at the earliest.

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    I have checked the posts in the News and Entertainment categories and this option is working as expected. Here is an example link:

    Could you please share a few copies of the links that are not working so that we can check further?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    Hi Michael,

    I had to ultimately change the permalink to post and only then it worked. But, that was not the case when I was using Yoast SEO. So, yes now the category does not appear in the URL and that’s because I have disabled it from permalink and not because of the Strip Category option of your plugin.
