Support » Fixing WordPress » a different permalink htaccess problem

  • Resolved JenRed


    I am having a big problem with my site after upgrading. Here is what is happening:

    – I have set permalinks to Numeric (so they will be for instance)

    – this is the htaccess that was generated:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    – when I try to go to I get a page that has the correct header, sidebar etc etc. Where the post should be it says “Archives” as the heading and “edit”

    – on that page the “edit” link goes to edit my actual Archives page (ie. the list of all my posts – I am using SRG Clean Archives 1.5 and turning it on or off makes no difference) rather than for instance post 123

    – if I put in that brings up the correct post just fine but I have already told it not to do things that way!

    Can anybody help me PLEASE! I have spent many hours on this and I am getting nowhere.

    thanks! 🙂

  • Try to change/modify the slug of tha Archive Page.

    I don’t know anything about slugs – can you give me a bit more of an idea what might need doing? thanks

    WOW! I did it! Thank you so much. I checked here to find out about Post Slugs (I already knew that much) and then thought I would go ahead and change the slug of the Archive page anyway and see what happened.

    Magic! I changed it from “archives” to “archiveslist” and now everything works the way it should.

    I can’t thank you enough! I have spent days trying to work this out. I never would have thought of doing that. Is there something that changed in the new version because it used to be fine before? Any further info as to what made you think of that or whatever would be great so that I can learn from it. 🙂
