Support » Fixing WordPress » 400 error when clicking on posts

    I have tried to create a blog in WP and have created two posts so far within the blog on my website.

    When I try to access any of them I get a 400 Bad request message.

    Even when I am editing the posts, if I click into preview it gives the same error.

    I am not sure what I am doing wrong… I thought this was supposed to be straightforward…

    Best regards,

    Cesc

  • Hi Cesc,

    When I click the blog posts on https://cescderrill.com/blog, I’m linked to https://cescderrill.com/%blog% for both.

    This is indicative of a problem with your permalink structure. To fix this:

    1. Go to https://cescderrill.com/wp-admin/options-permalink.php

    2. Remove /%blog% from your personalized structure

    3. Choose a combination of some of the available tags, such as:
    %post_id% or %postname%.

    That should sort the issue. Keep us posted! 🙂

    If you want the word “blog” in the url, then put it in the permalink, but without the % on either side.

    Thanks so much it is working now!
