WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We have a site with categories and subcategories.

If anybody navigates to a content belongs to a subcategory the url will have the following form: domain/main-category/sub-category/mycontent/ But we need another form: domain/main-category/mycontent where mycontent belongs a subcategory inside main-category, but we don't want the subcategory to be displayed in the URL.

Is there any possible solution for this?

If you go to Settings->Permalinks you should be able to set the tag/category base URL rules which should solve this problem.

Or, use some sort of plugin to do what you want. This one came up first on Google: http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-permalinks/

You can rewrite you .htaccess if you are familiar with this.

Add the below line and try it:

RewriteRule ^category/(.+)$ http://www.site.com/$1 [R=301,L]
