This seems to be a popular issue and I assure you that I have looked through several solutions. I'm encountering some issues with the URL that my categories are creating. I have categories set up like so:
- Child 1
- Child 1a
- Child 1b
- Child 2
- Child 2a
- Child 2b
- Child 2c
- Child 1
I'd like for my URLs to look like so:

I can remove
category from the URL if I have the following settings in
Category Base: .
If I use this method, the URL looks the way I want it to and the page loads correctly, but it seems like this method is not appropriate for Wordpress 4.6+. Is this still true? This method also uses a strange
Category template (which displays every subcategory item) for the following URL path:
I've also tried using the
Category URLS setting to
Remove. This does the same thing as the previously described solution.
What would be the best solution for creating URLs without the
category text and how should I fix this
Category template issue?
