I thought this plugin was working excellently well, until I realized that not all the pages I’ve created and attached to a particular category, really show up in the front end. It seems as if the number of pages that can appear on the front end is only 5, even if you have attached over 5 pages. It would appear some pages just mysteriously disappear in the front end. I’d love to hear from the developer.

Thank you very much for this plagin! But i was not able to assign it correctly. I ve got a category(page) called freebooks, but the content of the page won’t appear in that page. Could you guys help me about this? ‘freebooks’ => ‘freeboks’. I do not get this slug thing. Thank you!

Big thanks to Sandeep, The plugin works well. I just want to ask what happens to URL of pages from SEO perspective. I have pages Now when I create category itemType1 new URL is created: Where itemType1_PageA and itemType1_PageB are listed. My question is will the new URL interfere with existing links or not?

Please do fix. This plugin crash with Yoast SEO. When I created new page, the Category option did appear but the categories under it didn’t showing up. And there is an error sentence “An error occurred loading the Yoast SEO primary taxonomy picker.”
