[resolved] [closed] Backdating posts breaks permalinks (7 posts)

    I create a post, and backdate the scheduled publish date. The permalink reflects the scheduled backdate (using the /year/month/postname structure). I publish the link. When I enter the permalink into the browser, I get a page not found error. When I click on post links on the blog's front page, I get the same error.

    Found out that multi-site has some weird thing set up with appending /blog/ to permalinks. Deleting that resulted in same errors. Changing /blog/ to /post/ also resulted in same errors.

    I want posts to have a /year/month/postname structure. I'll settle for a /post/year/month/postname structure. Do I have to reinstall WordPress?

    If you're using subfolders (domain.com/site/) then yes, your main site gets /blog/ slapped in there.

    Do non-backdated posts work?

    I've changed /blog/ multiple times, so that it got slapped in there...

    Look, I just an answer to my question. If you don't know, please move along and let someone else answer.

  4. Repeat: Do non-backdated posts work?

    You're the one asking for help here, buddy, and I'm asking THAT question for a reason. If you don't want my help, or anyone's help, please, continue to act like that.

    Just not yours. Thank you anyway.

  6. Do I have to reinstall WordPress?

    No.

    But the question Ipstenu asked above is information anyone helping needs to know in order to help you.

    I reinstalled WordPress. It seemed simpler, given that people have been trying to resolve this matter for years now, and that even a few months ago, the best solutions required geek level 301 skills to understand, much less implement.

    I'll be very happy when they fix this.
