    Hi Lads, please i need your help with something that has kept me from moving ahead with my initial plans.
    I used Yoast seo settings to strip "category" slug from my category page url but after doing so, the content on
    the category page automatically disappears, but once i disable the settings the content re-appears again.

    I need your help with keeping the settings and the content. if there is anyway around this, i would be glad.
    Thanks in advance.

    use a plugin called remove category, can't remember which ones, and also go into your settings/permalinks and check what the structure of your post is.

    Thanks guys, but am not actually looking for how to remove it from my url. All am saying is that whenever i remove the category slug from my url(/make-money) the content on my category page disappears but once i return the url to /category/make-money the content reappears again. SO how am i supposed to keep the content in the first instance.

    don't use yoast, learn to do this in your .htaccess file.
