Support » Fixing WordPress » [2.5] Headline Links to full article – 404 Error

  • When I first upgraded to 2.5 I had issues with the ADMIN section. I finally got that to work, and the site was fully functional yesterday.

    Today -none of the links are working. When I click a Headline to read the full post, I get the following error message:

    Not Found
    The requested URL /blog/idol-conspiracy-fixed-votes.htm was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Apache/1.3.37 Server at Port 80

    I’m not a web guru – I have no idea with this means. Everything worked fine yesterday – and I’ve made no other changes to the site other than creating a new post today. Any assistance would be wonderful.

  • As I explore the site more – I realize that NONE of the links are working. They all worked fine yesterday. UGH!

    I gave up … reverted back to 2.3.3. Someone let me know when all the bugs are gone. Then maybe I’ll upgrade to 2.5.

    I don’t think it was a bug. More likely there was an issue with your permalinks – according to the error message.
    Did you ever try resetting your permalinks before downgrading?

    I had exactly the same thing happen.

    When I upgraded to 2.5, I reset permalinks as a matter of course. I checked links and they all worked fine. Today I got an email from a reader that links were broken. Sure enough, clicking on a page link returns a “no post found on that topic” message. Note, this is not the same as a 404 page.

    I reset permalinks again, and now it works… again.

    I’d hate to have to do this every day, though.

    “reset permalinks” … that’s a foreign language to me.

    Settings –> Permalinks –> Save Changes

    That’s it.
