    Hi,

    How do I remove the /category/ URL structures?

    I’d prefer for example: mikemetcalfe.co/category name here  NOT    /category/category name here

    Any advice? Thks

    Probably the easiest way is to install Yoast’s WordPress SEO plugin. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-seo/

    It’ll help your site in a lot of other ways and there’s a built in function to strip the /category/ from your permalinks.

    Hi

    MetcalfeM, I am also looking to remove the category URL. Fat Media, thanks for the heads up, is it recommended to use Yoast and Genesis together?

    Thanks

    Sam,

    Yes, Yoast will integrate with Genesis effortlessly. Yoast uses Genesis for his own site. http://yoast.com/
