Simple URLs
Complete Stoppage of Redirection (10 posts)

    When I installed this plugin, it worked like a charm. Now it has quit working, altogether. Every single url is getting a "Page not Found" error, now. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you when it quit working, but I can tell you, I haven't added any new plugins or themes, since the time this plugin did work.

    I can verify that this plugin worked after several posts, however I know there have been some plugin upgrades, too.

    Upon further testing, the issue seems to have been caused by the latest update to the WordPress SEO Plugin, by Joost de Valk. I'm not sure as to what caused the issue, but I can tell you that it seems to go away, by deactivating the WordPress SEO plugin and then re-activating it.

    I know StudioPress/Genesis works with WordPress SEO, but this specific plugin combination seems to trigger a unique bug... worth looking in to.

    This issue occurs every time a WordPress SEO Update is made available. Not when it is applied, but when it is made available. To rid the problem, one must apply the update to WordPress SEO, then deactivate/reactivate it.

    Someone needs to quit changing the status of this issue to "RESOLVED"

    This issue is NOT resolved and very annoying. It is so annoying, I'm trying to decide which of the two plugins, to quit using. You two plugin developers need to get together and get this issue fixed.

    This issue occurs each and EVERY time a WordPress SEO Update is made available. Not when it is applied, but when it is made available. To rid the problem, one must apply the update to WordPress SEO, then deactivate/reactivate it.

    It is very obvious that the one or the other plugin, is trampling on the code of the other.

    I marked it as resolved because you said you had found the issue

    Usually the folks you turn to when an update causes errors, etc. are the developer(s) of the plugin you are updating.

    Ron,

    The issue does seem to somehow involve the WordPress SEO Plugin, though in the looking I've done, I can't figure out why it behaves this way.

    I also know to turn to the developers of the updating plugin, if that is when the issue occurs. In this specific instance, it occurs each and every time, the WordPress SEO Plugin, has an available update. So, naturally, Joost de Valk and his team would be the first place to turn. I know the WordPress SEO Plugin is not immune to coding errors and they do a pretty decent job of fixing issues, as they arise. I just have a hard time believing that the issue lies solely on WordPress SEO.

    I have added a support request to WordPress SEO, here:

    In case anyone is interested in seeing what their developers have to say.

    Simple URLs work on custom post type rewrite rules (internal to WP). The most likely cause of your issue is that the internal rewrite rules are being updated & do not include the simple URLs rules. If this were caused by Simple URLs then activating another CPT plugin that were queryable on the front end would also have the same issue.

    We also have the AgentPress Listings plugin which uses CPTs (and the rewrite rules). APL & GSU work fine together.

    Ron, if this issue occured after I elected to upgrade the WordPress SEO plugin, I would totally buy into your explanation. However, that isn't when the issue occurs.

    The Simple URLs Plugin, quits working, the minute WordPress SEO has an update available, and notifies me (the admin) in the dashboard. So the Simple URLs Plugin, stops working, even before the update process is initiated.

    Sorry, I misunderstood. However, it does not change the fact that the issue is being triggered by another plugin.
