Help with Cusotm Taxonomy archive pages! (4 posts)

    Hello,

    I use the Simple Taxonomy plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-taxonomy/) to manage several taxonomies. After a recent upgrade to WP 3.1 (but maybe before too -- I wasn't very careful in my testing up to this point), I find that I can't access the taxonomy archive pages any more. but I really need them! Can anyone help me to figure this out? I've tried a number of things but can't figure out what the issue is. Individual posts register themselves as belonging to the taxonomy, and that shows up in the custom templates I've made -- but the links to the archive pages all produce a "Not Found" message. Here are some links to the site:

    Main Site:
    http://department-test-wp.hackinghistory.ca/
    A Test Post:
    http://department-test-wp.hackinghistory.ca/2011/06/10/taxonomy-test/
    The missing archives for a test taxonomy:
    http://department-test-wp.hackinghistory.ca/2011/06/10/taxonomy-test/

    thank very much for your help! I feel sure that if I understood properly how the taxonomy archives are generated I could at least inset the right statements into the database, but in the absence of htat understanding I'm not getting far. Whatever help you cna point me towardsis very welcome! Thanks
    Matt

    the problem is that your archive and post have exactly the same name url. modify your taxonomy or post permalink structure and that should fix your problem.

    I had a similiar problem with a site i manage took me about an hour to realize it was this simple.

    There must have been some changes in the way permalinks are handled because in previous versions that scheme had worked

    Hi,

    I was really hopeful that you might be right, because I had problems with this kind of 'namespace collision' before. But I don't think this is the issue -- instead, I just stupidly posted in the wrong link. Here's a better example:

    Here's a custom taxonomy which should have a number of posts associated with it. Instead, it's empty:
    http://department-test-wp.hackinghistory.ca/periods/modern

    The earlier links are really truly dead now -- this is a better example. Thanks!

    have you tried going to the permalinks page and resaving your permalink structure?
