Categories/Tags Not Working
check your permalink settings http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks
does your theme have a archive.php, category.php or tag.php?
if not, does the index.php contain a custom query?
do the month or year archives work?
if this does not help to solve your problem, please post a link to your site.
I use a custom structure for my permalink: /%category%/%postname%/
My theme has a category-33.php i just checked the month and year archives don’t work either.
category-33.php is a category tempalte which will only get used for archives of category 33; do you have posts of category 33, and does that category archive work properly?
what is the code in index.php?
(please use the pastebin – see http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Posting_Code )
i don’t have an archive.php
this is the section in index.php, I would be calling a ‘custom query’:
<?php $temp = $wp_query; $wp_query = null; $wp_query = new WP_Query(); $wp_query->query('cat=-49,-50,-52&paged='.$paged); ?>
make a copy of index.php, save it as archive.php, and remove that section from archive.php
ok thanks i will do this. Will this fix everything? Categories/Tags and Archives?
Will this fix everything? Categories/Tags and Archives?
it worked thanks. I had to change the pagination though b/c it was copying my 148 blog posts. So lets just say each category had 10 posts it would go through all 10, but when you click 11 you get error.
I have 1 more question for you: http://www.acneskinsite.com/
If you go to my website i want to exclude widgets from certain pages, i downloaded widget logic it is working great except for 1 thing. I want my FB/Twitter widget and video to only show on the homepage, but if i use the plugin and put show on homepage only it will still show up on the blog page too. I think b/c my homepage is synced with the blog for blog post updates it might not be possible, maybe if i try Manuel conditional hash it would work?
P.S after you see my website u might think why not go to the design company, well i decided to start learning things on my own and stop paying a lot of money for something i should be able to figure out.
is_home()checks for the blog page;
is_front_page()for the front page;
ok so is_front_page(123) will make it show only on homepage, that isnt the correct page id i just put 123
when i typed in is_front_page(10) it removed the widget from the homepage and the blog page
I am not sure what you are trying to achieve;
is_front_page()does not use any arguments: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/is_front_page
ok in settings under reading: Front Page displays: A static page (select below) Front page: home Post page: go to my websites homepage: http://www.acneskinsite.com/ I’m trying to make the Fb widget twitter widget and the video only show on the homepage, but every time i try it will still show on my blog page too.
