Support » Fixing WordPress » can’t edit posts – redirecting to permalinks

  • I’m using the custom permalinks feature using /%postname%/ WordPress is installed on /updates on the root of my site and I’ve got my .htacces file in the /updates directory with to following (as instructed by wordpress):

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

    suddenly after it working flawlessly for the past few weeks, anytime I go into the wp-admin section, click manage and try to edit a post, it takes me briefly to the edit post page, then redirects to the permalink for that post.

    Anyone else experience something like this?

  • What plugins did you install before that “suddenly”?


    thank you for the reply.

    I didn’t install any plugin. There’s a good change that one of our “tech” guys did something crazy server side. There is another .htaccess file sitting on the root of the site, but removing it does nothing to fix the wordpress problem. Removing the custom permalinks (back to deaful) and removing the wordpress htaccess file allows me to edit the posts once again.

    Problem still exists.

    We see a couple onload handlers on the edit page. The edit page is loading but as soon as it loads it’s redirecting to the permalink blog page. Is it possible that something’s up with the onload handler? Do you have any knowledge of what could be set server side to affect the onload handler?



    Last time I have seen/heard similar issues was due to a plugin called FrameBuster – it is used to get out WP if it’s “trapped” in a frame.
    But all that happened at the time of 2.0.

    (I am not a server guy, so can’t tell you anything about what was screwed up by your host)
