Support » Plugin: Post Types Unlimited » Intermittent 404 errors when previewing

    I’ve been using the Total theme for several projects and support has been phenomenal. I had been using Custom Post Types UI for a few projects and began testing the Post Types Unlimited plugin as a possible replacement for that. On several sites, some with and some without Total set as the theme, when trying to preview posts created in a CPT using PTU, I intermittently get a 404 error. Not sure what is happening but it is keeping me from moving forward with it as a replacement for CPT UI.

    I could create a video to show what is happening, but essentially, when previewing a post, I sometimes get the preview as expected and the URL is clean, like this (from a local test site):

    http://localhost:81/wordpress/self-help/some-kind-of-kb-article/?preview=true

    When I get a 404 instead, the URL contains much more information and looks like this:

    http://localhost:81/wordpress/self-help/some-kind-of-kb-article/?preview_id=75&preview_nonce=27ffd3ad0a&post_format=standard&_thumbnail_id=-1

    I’m still a bit of a babe in the woods with some things WordPress does so this could be something I am doing. I’ve experienced it in several environments (from IIS to WAMP) with different versions of WP running and all seem to have this problem.

    Thanks.

    404 Errors are generally issues with WordPress permalinks. Have you tried re-saving your permalinks?

    ps: If you are using Total be sure to seek support on the item page or create a support ticket to make sure I get back to you ASAP as you have access to premium support. Thanks!
