[resolved] It works for logged in users, 404 for everyone else? (4 posts)

    My friend runs http://www.sticksoffire.com -- a hyperlocal blog for the Tampa Bay metro area... He was planning on (and is) covering Super Bowl 43 stuff as the game nears.

    We had created a customized page template specifically for posts under one certain category. I can attest that everything looks fine with a custom header and sidebar in this template and the page works for those logged in to WordPress at http://www.sticksoffire.com

    ...But that's the rub. Anyone not logged in who visits http://www.sticksoffire.com/super-bowl/ will get a 404 error message while seeing the standard template for the site.

    What would cause something like that to happen?

    (and I apologize if errors like this have been discussed before, I didn't even know what to search for)

    I took a moment and registered (WilliamCCross) and visited http://www.sticksoffire.com/super-bowl/ but I still don't see your page you're talking about. Are you sure you spelled the post slug correctly?

    yeah, the slug is spelled correctly.

    Stupid on the publishers part. It was a draft. Admins could see it but no one else.

    I figured it was unpublished or private. I feel stupid for even posting this. Sorry folks.
