Permalinks Issue (6 posts)

    Hi all,

    I am currently running into a permalink issue, whenever we update a page the permalinks breaks down and we get an error 404 on every page. We have to change the permalink structure back to the basic and change it back to the custom type.

    This issue seems to have been happening since WP 2, and I've been seeing a lot of closed threads. I've already tried a couple of the suggestions such as making the directory write protected for the .htaccess, but it doesn't seem to be an htaccess issue because there doesn't seem to be any changes to the htaccess whenever we edit the posts.

    Sorry if there is already an existing thread for this, maybe I can be redirected to the proper thread if ever.

    Thank you!

    Are you using any plugins related to permalinks? Start by disabling those and see what happens.

    nope, not using any plugins. Used the custom post type UI plugin but transferred the code to functions.php and the problem's still present.

    Can you confirm if after posting a page the .htaccess does not change, or it does change?

    mmm.. that's very strange then. Offhand do not know what could be it, but if you have time I would propose an experiment.

    Install a copy of your blog on a local pc.

    Get a backup of ALL the files and export the database to an sql file.

    Try to post a page on the local blog installation. If you get the 404 error, get another backup of ALL the files and export the database to sql file again.

    Compare all the files using compare tool and see what is the outcome. Would be interesting to know the result.
