[Resolved] Category Permalinks after 3.1 Upgrade Not Working

  • Hello:

    I upgraded to 3.1 from 3.05 today, and I encountered 2 problems after the update:

    -Custom permalinks with %category% did not work; they returned 404 errors on all my articles. Simple removing the %category% solved this error, however I’d much prefer keeping it.
    -I’m unable to access my category page (ie digitwo.com/category/uncategorized). Prior to the update I was able to access it at digitwo.com/content/category/uncategorized. However, now I’m unable to access it at all; any attempt ends up in a 404 not found error.

    I’ve tried many combinations, and have even changed the Category base setting in Settings > Permalink Settings to content, category, etc, but to no avail.

    The website in question is http://digitwo.com.

    Also, I forgot to add, my .htaccess is writable, and I’ve tried renaming / recreating it but it still refuses to work.

    Any help is appreciated,
    Thanks.

  • Simpletags plugin is the problem.
    uncheck ( Active tags for page ) and everything will be ok.

    I had the same problem in my website Online Best Videos yesterday.

    Hope it will solve your problem.

    Thx Kadiko

    I was able to rectivate simple tags by doing that.

    You welcome OzPoker .

    Again, I disabled all my plugins.

    I fixed it by doing the following:
    -Disabled my plugins
    -Letting WP regenerate .htaccess
    -changed my permalink setting to /%monthnum%/%day%/%category%/%postname%/

    seeARMS that’s the right way for it.

    Basically, you need to let WP regenerate your .htaccess. Read this for more details:

    I tried everything, doesn’t work for me. All categories and tags showing the 404 error, posts are seen uncategorized, category page may sometime appear with all categories and sometimes nothing. PLS H.E.L.P!

    Any way to downgrade from 3.1?

    Simpletags plugin is the problem.
    uncheck ( Active tags for page ) and everything will be ok.

    This fixed the problem for me as well.

    I think you need to make sure you update permalinks after each change you make.

    I uncheck “Activate tags for page” in Simple Tags plugin and everything is back to normal. I had the same problem with my permalinks for categories. Good thread. Thank you a lot.

    Simple Tags it is. Deactivate – rebuild permalinks – now it works.

    The category RSS is still not working well…

    With the Advanced Permalinks it’s just a problem with the category rewrites of the plugin.
    So adjust in the normal permalink section the category base as wanted. I hope so you can keep your category urls. Because then it’s easy.
    Next edit the plugin Advanced Permalinks, the first selected file is right. Now look in the editor for:
    $this->add_filter (‘category_rewrite_rules’);
    and add simply
    //
    at the beginning.
    Done.
