Support » Fixing WordPress » Dropdown menu problems

  • I’ve got several WordPress web sites using different themes that occasionally exhibit strange behavior when you click on them. The sites will work fine, then one day you click on a dropdown menu link, the URL displays the correct custom link, but the website simply reloads the home page, or whatever page on the sites you were currently on. I am running the sites on Windows Server 2008R2 with IIS7.

    If I login to manage the WordPress, select Settings/Permalinks, then click ‘Save Changes’, the dropdown menu links will work. Then if I start another broswer on a different computer, go to the problem site, click on a dropdown link, odds are it will not work. If I save changes again under permalinks it them works. The permalinks are set to ‘Post name’.

    Also, if I open the ‘web.config’ file and save it the links will work. But only for a while, then after some amount of time the links will fail again. Or not work on some other computers browser.

    An example is one site at This is becoming quite frustrating so I hope someone has a clue. Thanks in advance.
