Pick the category you'd like to have for the permalink.
Check your permalinks in the posts list. If a heart is present, it means a category (or taxonomy) has been chosen.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
How to get the chosen category using PHP?
Have a look at this thread: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/get-primary-category/#post-9055471
- Fix: WP 4.9.
- Fix: Name instead of Query Var.
- Fix: Avoid double trailing slashes.
- Fix: Trailing slashes.
- Fix: Display issues (heart icon was flying all over the place).
- Fix: Permalinks are handled in a much better way. More support for other plugins for custom permalinks.
- Fix: Handle events on the label instead of the li. Inject the link into the label too.
- Update: Additional error handling.
- Update: Enhance the way the post meta is handled.
- Fix: Now newly created categories can be selected.
- Fix: Pro version validation.
- Fix: The permalink below the title was showing a warning even though the category has been picked with a previous version of the plugin.
- Fix: The categories were not bold nor red on the Posts list. With Pro, that also works with WooCommerce well 🙂
- Fix: Issue from the past. If you can’t seem to save your columns, you might need to run the query “DELETE FROM
meta_keyLIKE ‘%wp_manageedit%'” on your DB, just once, to repair the View Screen options.
- Fix: Issue with multisite (with the includes).
- Add: Permalink shown below the title of the posts list (can be disabled in the option). Heart means a category has been picked, otherwise a little red warning is shown.
- Update: A lot of coding & UI improvements.
- Fix: Infinite hidden columns to user meta (https://wordpress.org/support/topic/infinite-user-meta).
- Fix: Update issue for non-WooCommerce user.
- Change: Let’s make it 2.0 since it’s a major change.
- Stable release.
- Add: default category will be shown in red if no category was picked.
