Change the Category or Tag Base in ClassicPress

Did you know you can swap your categories and tags in ClassicPress? This is very handy when your taxonomy structure is changed!

Category and tag URLs have bases that indicate whether they are for categories or tags. For example, the URL for a category named Cars looks like this:

…and the URL for a tag named Florida looks like this:

If you would like to change either of these bases, you can do so at:

Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks > Optional

Note that some plugins may disable category and tags bases; in that case, these settings will not have any effect.


If you need to swap your categories and tags, there’s an importer tool for that!

Dashboard > Tool > Available Tools > Cat/Tag Converter > Install Now
