A little background:
Client’s WordPress site has a custom post type for portfolio. The client decided the portfolio section was too big, and wanted to change that section to ‘Archive,’ and create a new portfolio section with just a few standout projects.
Here’s what I did:
- Created a new template for the new portfolio section, and renamed old portfolio template to archive (both index template, and detail view template
- Registered new post type in funcitons.php for archive
- Renamed old portfolio page to archive and champed template
- Created new page for new portfolio posts
- Performed SQL search/replace to move all old portfolio posts to archive posts
At this point, everything appeared to be working, except when I clicked on the archive post link in the index, the detail page came up with a redirect loop error. So I went back into PhpMyAdmin to investivate thinking I had missed a field that needed changing for the old portfolio posts (now archive posts).
I found that the ‘guid’ field still referenced the portfolio post type, so search/replace changed those to reference the archive post type.
This still didn’t fix the problem – still getting the redirect loop error.
What did I miss? Is there some serialized data that needs to be changed? Did I screw everything up beyond repair? I took a back up for the db in case I need to go back.
Any help would be much appreciated.
