Open functions.php in template folder
and add code

Code:
add_filter(‘user_trailingslashit’, ‘remcat_function’);
function remcat_function($link) {
return str_replace(“/category/”, “/”, $link);
}
add_action(‘init’, ‘remcat_flush_rules’);
function remcat_flush_rules() {
global $wp_rewrite;
$wp_rewrite->flush_rules();
}
add_filter(‘generate_rewrite_rules’, ‘remcat_rewrite’);
function remcat_rewrite($wp_rewrite) {
$new_rules = array(‘(.+)/page/(.+)/?’ => ‘index.php?category_name=’.$wp_rewrite->preg_index(1).’&paged=’.$wp_rewrite->preg_index(2));
$wp_rewrite->rules = $new_rules + $wp_rewrite->rules;
}
cheers,

You can also use Yoast SEO plugin for that. But thank you for the code it is also nice to know because you don't want use to much plugins on your site.

this is very easy to do, just goto your wordpress settings and go to the permalink section where you can select how your link will be presented.

By default, WordPress category permalinks are displayed that way:

http://www.xxxxx.com/blog/category/wordpress As you can see, the category in the url is pretty useless. Here's how to remove it:

First backup your .htaccess file. Then, open it and append the following line:

RewriteRule ^category/(.+)$ http://www.yourblog.com/$1 [R=301,L]Once saved, your categories pages will be displayed like this:

http://www.xxxxx.com/blog/wordpress
