  • That’s a strange redirect. What’s in your .htaccess file? Does the problem occur if you disable all plugins and revert to the default theme?

    The /.htaccess file contains the same code as suggested in the permalinks page:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    I might clone the system into another database and see what it does when I do disable all that stuff…I’d just rather not touch the production system like that. Will advise what happens…

    I might add that it’s just the pages OTHER THAN the main page that are affected.

    I’ve changed the theme to the default…seems to work alright. Can someone have a look and confirm for me though?

    There are a lot of broken links because it wasn’t the cleanest of migrations, but it’ll hold I guess.

    I don’t have any problems with the actual feed – it’s just that the Firefox RSS feed page appears when the normal page is expected (have a look at the URL in the screenshot)

    I’ve decided to change themes for this instead of faffing about trying to work out what’s wrong with the theme.

    Thanks anyway everyone!

    But actually you do have a problem with the feed, as kmessinger pointed out.

    Ok. Maybe the issue hasn’t been resolved yet, but it’s more tempremental rather that consistent. If the user presses refresh, as before, the problem goes away.

    I’m just wondering, how does the problems with the RSS feed have anything to do with this particular problem in that Firefox will return the RSS feed page when it was expecting a regular page?

    Hi Excalibur,

    I had the same problem and I find out it is quite common (I saw a lot of blog having the same issue).

    I tried a lot of solution and the final one was ok. Please, don’t ask me why it works: I don’t know.

    Example: page (or post) ONE is the one which create problem

    1. Copy html text of page ONE
    2. Delete page one, also from the bin
    3. Use GD Press to delete all the revision of all the post and pages
    4. Change you permalink in whatever you prefer
    5. Check that there are no other post with some permalink similar to your new post/page (I had a static page called e-learning and that was the first cause of the crash)
    6. New pages/post: paste the html code
    7. Use a new permalink. E.G. the old one was /content-management and now write /content

    That could work. If necessary rewrite al pages and post in the same way.

    I think that a part of the problem could be solved by using Link Juicer Plugin ( and Wp Super Cache (

    The first prevent error in links and redirect to the right pages (it works properly also for no permalinks to permalinks). The second creates html static page that are suitable also for broken links.

    Let me know if it works.


    So we have to write over and over?
