Category Links "not found"

  • Hello,

    I recently launched a website and I am having trouble with the category links from the blog and blog posts pages. We reset our .htacess, saved permalinks, changed permissions on the .htaccess, tried the hotfix plugin, and none of these work.

    The only thing that helped was changing permalinks back to default, but nobody wants those ugly urls.

    I am using WP 3.2.1 and a custom theme. Please help!

  • I just had this issue on an accountancy blog I manage – after changing hosting companies.

    None of the tag or category links were working – all giving a page not found error.

    I checked the old site still running on the previous hosting companies servers and that works fine.

    The solution was to switch to an out of the box theme (eg. twentyeleven) – test (yes it works) – and then switch back. That fixed it!

    Perhaps the tag.php or category.php wasn’t loading properly for some reason?!

    Either way, it’s working again now.
