  • Is this a new problem?

    How many posts do you currently have on your site?

    Ya it is new just because I’ve recently surpassed my 10 posts that I allow for the homepage.

    so I changed it to allow for 11 posts reading somewhere that that helped other users with the problem but it didn’t worked for me.

    What happens if you switch to the default permalink structure?

    Still gives the same error.


    Are you using any plugins?

    If so temporarily disable them all.

    Then go back to the permalinks settings and save the option “Post Names” again (I know you’ve already done it, but I want you try it with all plugins deactivated)

    Then see if it works and report back.

    Unfortunately that didn’t work either, after disabling the plugins i got the same error so I tried default permalinks again and still had no luck.

    Hmmm… this is a strange one.

    If you’re comfortable giving me your login details I can have a look in the backend of you WordPress and see if I can figure it out.

    If you are comfortable with this, send them to me privately via my contact details – [ link deleted ]

    If not, I don’t know what else to suggest, other then contact the theme providers.

    @ryan Love Please do not post emails, contact form links or use these forums for contacting people. That is not how support is offered in these forums.

    @jan – No problems, I know for the future. Although it was always my intention to come back to this post and let everyone know what the solution was.

    @tanner – Sorted. Basically you’ve got 10 posts published, but had set to show 11 posts on the homepage.

    So when anyone clicked to see the second page, there was no second page because you didn’t exceed the 11 posts.

    I changed this to 9, which means you do need a second page as you have 10 posts and that stops the 404 error.

    It’s worth noting though, for some reason your site is only showing the 5 latest posts on your homepage, then when you click to go to the second page it again shows the first 5 posts.

    I have no clue why this is. All I can suggest is temporarily deactivating ALL your plugins and temporarily change to the default WordPress theme (Twenty thirteen) and see if you can now see more then 5 posts on the homepage, (should be 9).

    If you can, change back to your current theme and see if you can still see more the 5 posts on the homepage.

    If you can, then start re-activating your plugins, 1 by 1 until you find the problem.

    If this doesn’t solve the problem, start a new thread in here.

    All the best,
