WordPress permalink custom structure not working on subcategories

I am working on a Wordpress theme for a portfolio website. I have a bunch of posts that are projects that have a category of 'projects' but also subcategories like 'video' or 'photography'. I have an archive page for the category of 'projects' that displays all the 'projects' posts and, on this page, I also have a directory with the list of all the subcategories under 'projects' that I want to link to each respective subcategory archive page. Everything was working great, until I edited the permalink structure. I would like for the 'projects' archive page permalink to look like the following: domain.com/projects/ To do this, I used a custom structure of /%category%/%postname%/ and, on the category base I wrote . (a dot), to hide 'category' from the permalink (otherwise it would lool like: domain.com/category/projects/). So, now the subcategories' links don't work, because the subcategory permalink is: domain.com/subcategory/ but the directory of subcategories under 'projects' link to: domain.com/projects/subcategories/ Any ideas on how to either change the subcategories permalinks or the actual links on the directory of subcategories? Additional context: I am calling this list of subcategories like this: <?php $category = get_category_by_slug( 'projects' ); wp_list_categories('child_of='.$category->term_id); ?>
