[resolved] Pages redirecting when I change permalink (6 posts)

    I created a page called sidestix.com/videos, I then changed the permalink to sidestix.com/video-gallery, and then I decided to change it back to sidestix.com/videos, I clicked update, and I can "preview the changes" just fine, but when I type the url in to the address bar it redirects me to a different page on my site sidestix.com/tutorials.

    I have no idea what is going, any suggestions?

    ok I figured it out, it was a plugin called redirection that was trying to automatically avoid 404s by redirecting to different pages

    First, I assume you hit 'Update' as well as 'OK' when you were changing it.

    When you go back to the edit screen for that page, which url shows as the permalink? The correct one, or the outdated one?

    Not sure, but here are two ideas to start:

    1. Clear your cache, restart your browser, see if the problem persists. You could also check if it's happening in another browser.

    2. Go to Settings > Permalinks and change the settings, then change them back to see if that updates your links for you.

    HA. You solved it while I was typing. Glad it's worked out, thanks for the solution.
