I'm helping my girlfriend clean up the display of her site and didn't realize that wordpress.com doesn't offer the plugin system like wordpress.org.
Anyway, on my blog (http://blog.travisyoungphotography.com/) I list categories in my menu and use the custom permalinks plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-permalinks/) to tidy up the display so that it reads "http://blog.travisyoungphotography.com/automotive/"
With the setup here for my girlfriend using wordpress.com (cucinaandcamera.com), when you click on a category in the menu the link reads"cucinaandcamera.com/category/food"
Essentially what we are trying to accomplish is to tidy things up and to omit the "/category/food" and simply it to just "/food"
Anyway, small thing, but if there's anyway around this without the use of this plugin let me know! I just like keeping the displays tidy.
The blog I need help with is cucinaandcamera.com.
