    To summarize, please correct if I'm wrong, those who make automatic upgrade while having all their plugins activated are getting permalink errors or white pages. Those who deactivate their plugins and widgets and make manual upgrade, checking if all files are uploaded, have no problem, everything works fine?

    What happened when you tried this, http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/permalink-fix-disable-canonical-redirects-pack/ - did this solve the problem?

    Not wanting to add to the noise here, but thought it might be helpful to say I'm experiencing the same issue with one of my blogs. If I change the permalink structure back to default, it works fine. If I change it to any of the other custom settings, it's broken.

    I just checked 4 of my WP sites, all on different servers and every single one of them is having issues with the categories. On another forum, someone posted the category problem was being caused by Simple Tags plugin. I disabled this on all 4 blogs and everything is working fine, including custom permalinks structure.

    get the previous version you were running, then unzip it ... copy everything but the wp-content folder to where ever your WP folder/files are ... and when you go to open your site-admin it may tell you it needs to do a database update click ok to that and bam every thing is back up and running.

    good luck. I did exactly that after turning a few hairs gray and I got my wp back up. I hope this helps.

    What I find strange is, I can no longer use the "remove" "blog" slug plugin as well as, the link for "adding plugins" is missing... oops

    I experienced the same problem too. Good thing I haven't updated all my WordPress sites to its version 3.1. Let's just wait until there's a fix for this before updating.

    Maybe the developers overlooked this thing. I know they're fixing it now. Waiting... ^^,

    My version of the same problem:

    I was originally having a different issue, so I jumped to upgrade to 3.0.whatever and then to 3.1 hoping to fix that. It didn't fix it, so this morning I disabled all plugins and started to re-activate them one by one, looking to see which one was causing my original problem (sidebar code being repeatedly broken over the past few weeks... totally different issue, I think, so I won't describe it here).

    I do have Top Level Categories installed; do NOT have MultiPage Toolkit or SimpleTags installed, so those are not the issue for me.

    And YES, the site has been loading slooooowly or never finishing page-load at all for a couple of days. I thought it was my Internet provider, but I see others in this thread are having the issue.

    It has also occasionally been saying "page not found" if I click on a post's link, when of course I can see (from the front page) that the page *is* there, and Categories were saying "page not found" as well—at least last night, and maybe since I installed 3.1. Didn't look earlier than last night but I assume it's been right since the day I upgraded.

    Anyway, back to this morning... when I got through re-activating the plugins I thought most safe like Akismet, I re-activated Top Level Categories. I checked twice, and *all looked fine* except the categories, which I was hoping re-activating that would fix. I headed off to work, planning to figure it out and finish re-activating things when I got home.

    Checked the site an hour or so later to see how it looked from a PC (I have a Mac at home) and I had a 500 Internal Server Error—couldn't get onto the site or into the admin to disable TLC!!!

    So I FTP'd into the site, renamed the plugins folder plugins.old (in other words, as far as WP is concerned I deleted all plugins), then put in a new empty folder named plugins before returning to the site and to the admin.

    Now the site itself, individual posts, and the admin are accessible again.

    BUT, categories are still not functioning. Everything is still unbelievably slow (near-endless "spinning beach ball"). And this is with all the plugins, including TLC, *deleted.*

    Hope this helps you overworked debuggers out there. Thanks in advance!

    UPDATE: After reading Ipstenu's advice here
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/troubleshooting-wordpress-31-master-list

    I disabled the admin bar, which brings the site-loading to a normal speed,
    and installed FV Top Level Categories, which brought my category pages back. Both worth a try if your issues are like the ones in this thread.

    As someone who just spent SEVEN hours that I'd like back on this issue, I'd also like to say that I upgraded to 3.1 and it broke all the links on my site. Here's an example:

    Old URL
    http://www.passportdelicious.com/dining/2011/01/bloggers-blogger-stop.html

    New URL after 3.1 Update
    http://www.passportdelicious.com/2011/01/bloggers-blogger-stop/

    (so my /dining/ folder disappears as does the .html)

    I do have the Top Level Categories thingie installed. Not sure what to do with it. I don't have MultiPage Toolkit or SimpleTags installed.

    I basically deleted everything and went back to the (THANK GOD) backup I had made right before I did the 3.1 update. But I would like to update to 3.1 so please let me know if anyone has any brilliant ideas on how to address this that aren't overly technical because my tech skills only go so far.

    I'm running a wordpress blog since Nov 2008, doing every upgrade. Meanwhile there are 3500 posts and so far after upgrading to 3.1 there is no permalink issue, all post links are ok. Concerning broken links after upgrading to 3.1, guess a database query would solve the problem.
    Something like UPDATE wp_post SET post_content = replace(post_content, '[tweet]', '' ) ;

    Passportdelicious—DO try installing FV Top Level Categories (see link in my previous post, just above your question). It doesn't fix the whole world but I think it'll get your link issue fixed nicely, since it appears you had the same plugins I did before the upgrade.

    The problem with 2 tags on query is resolved by placing the symbol + between a tag and the other (with the old version of WP was enough that the two tags were separated by a space).

    I tried the FV Top Level Categories, however that didn't fix the issue. We're also running Genesis. Has anybody found a fix on Genesis yet or know what TYPE of plugins are causing the issue?

    I was beating myself senseless trying to fix this problem. we have 3 or 4 blogs with the same plugins and theme, and only one of them had this problem. categories and posts both redirected back to the front page and said Nothing found for [Page Title].

    After reading kellye's post I tried renaming the plugins folder and sticking an empty folder in. It did not work initially but then I went to the permalink page and deleted the category base I had which was "category", and saved it. It worked! I renamed the plugins folder back, and it all still worked.

    So, thanks kellye for leading me to a solution, I hope this helps someone else.

    I am having the same issue with my visual editor.

    *Using IE9 doesn't cause the issue
    *Using Firefox 4 causes the issue
    *disabling Multipage Toolkit fixes the issue
    *Using IE9 doesn't let the visual editor go full screen causes headace for writers

    Now if i disable Multipage Toolkit Plugin which would fix the issue but it would break the site as all feature article have more than one page and this is not good at all. I also found out that the plugin hasn't been developed on since 2008 which is real worry.

    I really need it fixed :(

    I just found this issue when looking into Google webmaster tools to find out why my site is not showing up on the SERPs all of a sudden. I changed my permalink structure in Jan 2011 to include the %year% before the postname as my site would not load. I have a huge amount of pages and using only the %postname% permalink caused a time-out. As of right now, the upgrade to 3.1 has changed all permalinks to the present year (2011) so all posts prior to the start of 2011 are going to a 404 page. I don't believe there's any way to manually edit that part of the permalink either. I've tried to use permalinks migration to change to a post_id instead of the year but it resulted in all links being broken.

    with all the broken back links my site is now in never-never land. Any thoughts?

    This was driving me crazy...

    I tried a lot of the suggested replacements, downgrades and plugin tips listed above because all of my blog LINKS and CATEGORIES stopped working, but nothing helped... Save ONE...

    The post by QUICOTO suggested going into the PERMALINKS and selecting DEFAULT...

    Now ALL my pages, links, categories, etc. work just fine. What was in 3.1 that screwed up all the link structure. So THIS TIME it was NOT a theme problem... First time an upgrade so destroyed my blog...

    Hope this helps.

    Just for fun and to try and figure out what had happened to my LINKS and CATEGORIES I went back into PERMALINKS and changed to "Month and name" and VOILA... everything worked... ??

    I then reactivated all my plugins and everything is fine...

    I have NO idea what the PERMALINK change had to do with my screwed up links, but now all is well and working fine.

    Sure caused me some consternation and heartache...

    Maybe some other post knows what the 3.1 upgrade did to the PERMALINK structure and why switching back and forth from DEFAULT cured the gremlin??

    FYI, we have just /%postname%/ for our setup and are on 3.2.1 and WP No Category Base has it figured out. I detailed more of our setup and issues in another thread if anyone is curious.
