I am trying to create a SILO structure on one of my WordPress site.
I have always checked this option on Yoast SEO plugin "Strip the category base (usually /category/) from the category URL."
So my category pages have this URL: sitename.com/apple/ (where "apple" is the category page)
Now I want to create a new "page" with the same slug, apple.
I can create a new "apple" page easily, however, when I go to sitename.com/apple/ the category page is displayed -- instead of the newly created page.
My question: Is there a way to "override" the default priority of category over a page? I'd like to show page because I will have control over it -- I can customize, add more content, and change them easily (plus, pages are going to help me structure my site better)
Appreciate your help!
