Support » Fixing WordPress » Custom plugin affecting Page display

  • I have created a simple plugin to create post types and taxonomies (full code can be found on pastebin here) to use with my custom theme. However, when I activate the plugin and refresh my permalinks (which are set to post name,) my pages stop functioning as expected.
