    This has been implemented on foundthru now and I’d really appreciate all interested parties testing and letting me know if you see any issues at all:

    Thank you!

    This should be implemented in all the places, so get_term_link returns:

    old URLs with the /product-category/ base should no longer be available

      Thanks for help with testing. I found other issues too where pages were being overridden. This will need a bit more work before I can release. Other fixes being released first.

    We need to add some additional rewrite/redirect rules and force permalink ordering set in FWW options or improve canonical URL feature to avoid duplicate content. Currently we can’t stop our competitors and then google bot from typing the additional items into the URL.


    Maybe, we can add all the combinations as rewrite rules, so there will be available only one unique URL like here:
