I need to know how to rewrite a Wordpress url that looks like this http://www.someurl.com/category/page into http://www.someurl.com/example/example.

Thank you!!!

You need to set a 301 redirect on the old page to the new.  Yoast SEO has the option to do this.  
I believe you'd just use this in the Appearance>Permalinks section  of WP-Admin:

Open in new window

What's the actual context of why you are doing this?  Are you migrating content from one area of the site to another?

jason1178: The old page has some nice ranking+traffic and I need to make the new page url the same as the old one.
