Categories page not working (8 posts)

    I'm not quite sure when this problem started and I tried to deactivate all of my Plugins but there doesn't seem to be a conflict with any of them.

    So does anyone else have problems with the actual download page. Things are showing up (and all the regular downloads work) but you can't access the category specific download sections which is bad if you have a lot of files in a single category.

    Here's the link to my page: http://www.aquadonis.ch/downloads/

    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

    @angelcosta - do you have a link to your site?

    As I have no idea when exactly this started to be an issue here's what I've done so far to try and find a possible source of this.

    1. tested Plugin (in)compatibility - doesn't seem to be a problem with the few ones I run.
    2. resting permalinks as this did help with another Plugin I had issues - didn't help and since I'm not using the custom download link I didn't think so it would but trying never hurts.
    3. downgraded to a previous version of the Plugin - could be a DB issue as the structure change with the last major update (and I didn't want to go that far back in time)...didn't do the trick neither.

    An unofficial point, I talked to my host and they don't have particular experience with this Plugin (understandably) but they told me that they were 90% positive it's not a hosting issue.

    Anyone with another suggestion, I'm willing to try it on my site. Maybe a nice email to the Plugin author could be another great idea...that makes wonders some times :-)

    I just found out that it is YOAST's wordpres seo causing this. Have no idea why.

    OH, uncheck this option in the plugin permalink page: Redirect ugly URL's to clean permalinks.

    now it's all good...

    Hi Maybe you can help me. I can't figure out if it's possible to display the downloads in only a specific category using shortcodes. There is an example for the categorys using the template codes but not using shortcodes and nothing I try seems to work.

    I appreciate any help you can give

    @angelcosta - cool! On another site where I have the same problem but didn't do the testing I actually have this installed and just a few days ago installed it on my own site. There should be a fix for this now that I know it's the WordPress SEO Plugin. I'll post it here if I find a way as this is a pretty useful option of Yoast's Plugin.

    @borzoid, this is in no way related to what we are discussing here.
    But...
    [downloads query="category=1" format="1"]
