Using Site Categories as blog homepage


I’ve just finished installing and configuring the above plugin, everything is working as expected.

Unfortunately if I set the landing page as a static page which is also set as the home page of the blog, I see the categories but the links come back with an error at the path: for example. (note this url is not live yet)

Is there any way of getting around this or does the directory have to be a sub page of the site?

Thanks in advance
