I can't change permalink?

  • Hello,

    For some reason I can’t change post permalink.

    1. I click edit and change the permalink
    2. Click okay, it changes
    3. Update the page. After the update, the permalink is back to the old

    The problem is not that I would have same name post in the trash. I emptied the trash and tried some weird names.

    I have a .htaccess file in the very root directory where the index.php is. Then I have WP installed on subdirectory. Should I also have .htaccess file in the subdirectory?

    Here’s the root .htaccess:

    AddHandler php5-script .php
    
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress

    All help is welcome and appreciated 🙂

  • Changing works for custom post types and pages, just not for posts. Any idea what could it be?
