Business Directory Plugin
[resolved] Single View Goes to 404 (8 posts)

    The link to the single view of listings is 404'ing on our install. Please see an example here:

    I customized some of our listing fields - could this be the cause?

    Hi Catherine,

    Well, the most common cause is a slug conflict. Have you tried changing the name of your slug? (wpbdm-category) to something else? Look under Directory Admin->Manage Options, the General tab.

    Also, check your caching plugins as well. Sometimes a change isn't reflected on the main site if you have them enabled. Make sure they are disabled or cleared after you change settings on BD.

    Changing the fields should not cause this issue.

    Thank you for the reply - changing the names of the slugs did not work (I changed both the directory listings slug and the categories slug).

    I unpublished the main listings page (http://www.musquodoboitvalleyguide.ca/wpbdm-listings/) and this is the link that the business name links to (you can see it here http://www.musquodoboitvalleyguide.ca/wpbdm-categories/small-business/) ... perhaps this is the problem.

    Oh yeah--that would be a problem. You have to have one publicly posted page with the [WPBUSDIRMANUI] short code in it, which I believe is the one you unpublished. If you change that, it should be OK.

    Unfortunately, this wasn't the problem. Thanks for continuing to help, though!

    On the category page, the link to the single view page points to http://www.musquodoboitvalleyguide.ca/wpbdm-listings/ ... this doesn't seem right? You can see it here:

    Do you have a page named wpbdm-listings? If so, you may wish to delete it. I'm not sure that's the right thing to have and it seems to be creating a conflict.

    Thanks again! No, I don't have a page named wpbdm-listings ... still not sure what the problem could be, I'll keep looking.

    One other suggestion--deactivate the plugin, remove any pages that don't have the [WPBUSDIRMANUI] code on them (and make sure you only have one of those), make sure you empty the trash, and then reactivate BD. That may help too.
