Remove Query Strings From WooCommerce Category URL's

21 Views
Last Modified: 2020-10-22
All of my category url's have query strings in them.  Such as
https://www.theherbsplace.com/?product_cat=children_page_1_c_4
I know this is assigned by WooCommerce so is there a setting within that will stop the use of query strings in the urls?  If not, is there a via PHP to create a url without the query string?  This is only happening on the categories.

Thanks,

Randal

Well, I logged out and I am still seeing the query strings.  I need to fix broken links and I don't want to use the query string urls.  Is there anything, you can think of, special about my setup that would promote the query strings?
