Home page not getting sticky posts (4 posts)

    Hello – I have a perplexing issue with the home page of a blog… http://beyondthedeal.net/blog". The home page is set to show posts (not a static page). There are two posts set to stick to the home page. Recently the code started to get a post that is not set as a sticky and is pulling the wrong URL for the post. The result is a page not found error.

    Home page looks for:
    http://beyondthedeal.net/blog/2011/01/19/acquisition-trends-for-2011-and-why-groupon-rejected-googles-6-billion-acquisition-bid/

    Actual URL of this post:
    http://beyondthedeal.net/blog/2011/01/19/acquisition-trends-for-2011-and/

    I tried to change the home page to show a static page (the About page), but is still tried to pull the post referenced above.

    Here are my ideas for the possible cause, but I’m not sure.
    - Theme compatibility issues with version of WordPress (the theme is Artemis and is two years old, the WordPress version is 3.2.1.).
    - One of the plug ins is causing the problem.
    - The php file ‘mainindex.php’ needs to be updated (I’m not a php coder, so I’m not sure).

    Does anyone have ideas for the possible cause and solution? Thanks

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Nope - I haven't tried those steps yet. I will give it a go and post my results (fingers crossed). Thanks!

    I took a look at the plugins and made an educated guess as to the culprit (this is a blog that didn't set up, I was just helping to troubleshoot). I decided to try one at a time, so I started with 'Redirection' and that did the trick - all fixed. Thanks again esmi!
