Excellent. Makes WordPress a proper CMS.
To anyone interested in adding or removing category base or post type base, etc etc, *without* having to tinker with raw PHP code, I highly recommend this plugin. It's a life saver.With all the pain involved in simple URL structuring with custom post types, we were about to give up on WP and move to another CMS. But this plugin in conjunction with ACF and CPTUI or Pods makes WordPress fairly professional.morespinach
