Custom Taxonomies / Permalinks (4 posts)

    I'm using Yoast's Simple Taxonomies and they're not working with permalinks /%postname%/ yet everything else on the site seems to be fine.

    If I turn permalinks off the custom taxonomies do work i.e.

    URL/?taxonomy=tag

    But once I turn them on, 404 i.e.

    URL/taxonomy/tag/

    I'm running a completely clean install of 3.0.5 with only the one plug-in installed.

    I worked on this a little bit more and if I delete all the traces of the custom taxonomies and then recreate them only one will work at a time. Seems like a problem with permalinks and multiple taxonomies working at the same time. Without the permalink structure changed both the first taxonomy and the second will work i.e.

    http://example.com/?people=john-smith
    and
    http://example.com/?state=new-mexico

    while when they're turned on with /%postname%/

    http://example.com/people/john-smith/ will work (created first)
    and
    http://example.com/states/new-mexico/ will not work

    One last little bit of info on this. It looks like the Permalinks aren't saved properly. I'm entirely unsure if this is an issue with Simple Taxonomies or a WP problem. One thing I've done is if I save something in the Tag base field on the permalinks menu then delete it right after all the permalinks for the custom taxonomies will start working again.

    This worked for me. What a weird bug.
