Hey Ralph, So I did some research on your query, and have some mixed results. First, there is a plugin that's out that will allow you to remove "category" from the URL, however I'm hesitant to post the name publicly due to sporadic reports of increased page load times when the plugin was activated. Second, you can achieve this by editing your .htaccess file, but that's not something I recommend unless you know what you're doing because you can totally toast your site if things go awry. So about the category query, if you want to PM I can give you the name or if you Google search your query you'll find the plugin I'm referencing. You'll have to decide for yourself if it's right for you. For your background query, do you have a specific link to this page? For SEO stuff check out Wordpress SEO by Yoast. Have had great experience with this plugin. Sweet! Nick

There aren't any options within Wordpress that will allow you to do this that I know of. As I noted above there have been performance issues with this. Here is a relatively recent (within the past year) post with more information regarding this query. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/turn-off-category-base For the plugin, if you can give me a URL I can take a look but there could be the change that the plugin may be outdated, or not compatible. I can at least take a look first before jumping to any conclusions though. Nick
