    Hi there,

    It has been a while.

    I have some trouble within my WPMU. I spent hours to find where it could come from, but without success.

    Here yu are : http://lasante.net/voyage-et-sante/

    I have an article on it for exemple : http://lasante.net/voyage-et-sante/divers/precautions-sante-tchad

    my problem is when you look for the category on the right, I have :

    http://lasante.net/voyage-et-sante/category/divers/ instead of what I'm waiting for : http://lasante.net/voyage-et-sante/divers/

    How can I remove this word "category" (both URLs works) ? On the options permalink is /%category%/%postname% an nothing write on Category base

    Please help if you can :/

    C├ędric

    Try a search on the main WP forums.
    It's a part of WP, and not specific to MU.

    It really is strange though, because if you look at the permalink to a post, it doesn't have that in there.

    Possibly because there is (typically) more information to work with on a full post permalink, vice just a category.

    Without it you could end up having a page with a slug of "news", and a category with a slug of "news". At that point, how is the back-end going to know which one to pull.

    It's not something on an MU install that you want to really tinker with, IMHO.

    If it's your own private WP install, that's different because you know to watch out for name collisions. With MU, who knows what an end user is going to do.
