The plugin is still working but “/category/” appears in the wp_nav_menu and pages don’t open anymore.
If I type the URL manualy “www.website.here/category/news” the link changes automaticaly to “www.website.here/news” and it works but I load my pages in ajax + html5 (pushState) and it doesn’t work because of “/category/” in the wp_nav_menu link.
I use a custom menu walker to remove accents. I can fix it this way but should be edited every time a custom texonomy is added.
Please fix it or give a hint to fix it by myself.
PS: sorry for my English.
Uninstallation and complete deletion of this plugin does not restore the permalink to using the base /category/ either. hence, whenever i typed abc.com/category/uncat/.. it will still redirect to abc.com/uncat/ and that causes page not found, unless i put install back the plugin.
ive tried this with a clean WordPress and this issue is confirmed. have looked into .htaccess file and everywhere i can think of to remove the redirection but failed so far.
does anyone know how to manually fix this issue?
you should try to go to Settings -> Permalinks and re-save the permalinks. Then you issue should be solved.
there should be no issue with duplicate content, as the URLs with /category/ should redirect to the right category URL with no category prefix. If that was not happening, there must be some plugin conflict on your site.
look like your Ajax was not handling 301 redirection properly, as it should still load the category even if there is a redirection to right URL with no category prefix.
new version of FV Top Level Categories (1.4) is now available for upgrade in WordPress.org. It fixes the WordPress 3.4 and 3.4.1 issues, so if you are having issues, just upgrade.
Hi – I think FV top level categories may have stopped working after 3.4 update. Basically, /categories/ reappeared after the update, nothing else seems to have been a factor.
Thanks for your work on this plug in
