I've installed wordpress and set permalink structure to


I've also used 'No Category Base' plugin

I can list all posts in category 'my-cat' on archive page //www.mysite.com/my-cat :)

but I just found out that this page returned same content //www.mysite.com/anything/my-cat



Is this normal for wordpress? Is there a way for //www.mysite.com/anything/my-cat ro return a 404 error?


  • Are you trying to say that mysite.com/my-cat and mysite-com/category/my-cat is showing you the same content? – Usce May 10 '16 at 18:52
  • Not only, mysite-com/anyting/more/crap//my-cat gives the same page – Antony Gibbs May 12 '16 at 8:33
  • I think if you just leave permalink structure to %postname% only it would solve the issuse, and your category will still be displayed, but as far as I know it won't make this behaviour, just suggestion you can try – Usce May 12 '16 at 14:30
