    I have a wordpress blog which has categories and subcategories. I have set permalinks to /%postname%/ .
    When ever i click on any category, i get page url in this format:
    hxxp://domain_name.com/category/category_name/

    and when i click on subcategory i get:
    hxxp://domain_name.com/category/category_name/subcategory_name/

    I want to show both above in this format:
    hxxp://domain_name.com/category_name-articles

    So problem is how to do it? is there any plugin for this ? Or what changes in codes required?

    Thanks for you time.

    I'm not sure because I have never used thaT SETUP BUT i USE /%category%/%postname%/ to give me domain.com/mycat/article. maybe /%category%-%postname%/ will work. let me know

    Do not put the / in front when you enter your nice permalink. The Wordpress system will automatically add a / in front. You can enter this:

    %category%-%postname%

    This should work just fine.

    Unless you have some kind of SEO plugin that interfered with the setting. Then, you should check the setting of that plugin. One I could think of is All-In-One-SEO plugin.

    Hope it helps:)
