The ‘Strip the category base (usually /category/) from the category URL.’ from Yoast SEO plugin does not work with WPML.

strip category base WP SEO

When you activate this option in Yoast SEO plugin (Strip the category base (usually /category/) from the category URL.), the categories in other language give 404 errors.


Disable that option in Yoast SEO plugin and use this plugin instead

  1. The process you described above is not working. If you add ‘.’ to the category base it shows a 404 error. The only workaround is to manually redirect each one of them to category page.

    What can we do if we don’t want to install the plugin?

  2. We have just released a beta version that resolves this issue, please if you can give it a try – important note! – it’s a beta so I do not recommend using it on production without running it first on a test server.
