[resolved] Specific parent page causing 404 error (4 posts)

    I'm wracking my brain here trying to figure out what on earth is going on with this subpage:

    http://www.fragileheart.com/journal/author/lifes-too-short/

    as it keeps giving me a 404 error. I created this page within the dashboard and am only using the default template. It was working fine before the 2.5 RC1 upgrade. And before I started using my backed up files, I decided to try creating the exact same (except for the titles of the pages of course) page for all my other pages on the blog and they all work fine as a parent page for it!

    http://www.fragileheart.com/journal/elsewhere/not-elsewhere-either/
    http://www.fragileheart.com/journal/archives/not-archives/

    I created them all the exact same way, and am only having a problem with the one linking off the author page.

    Can someone please help me?

    I was getting a very similar problem -- any pages that were child pages of another page, and were created before the 2.5 update returned a 404 error. The pages still existed in the database, but were not available on the site.

    You may try to change your Permalink structure to a standard value and then back to your custom permalinks... it worked for me :)

    Thanks DocMario - that worked like a little charm. Kind of like restarting windows huh? :D
