One of my categories is broke

  • Is your blog installed in the directory /news/ ? If so, wouldn’t it need to be /news/exhibitions/ to get the category? Have you tried changing your permalinks so that categories have a different layout like /cat/news and /cat/exhibitions/ ? If all else failed, given that you used to have a page and template by that name you might consider an alternate name for the category. Maybe change it to “exhibits” or “shows” instead of “exhibitions”?

    The blog is installed to the root. However my category base for permalinks is set to ‘/..’ which means that all categories are listed directly under the root; /news or /exhibitions instead of cat/news or /cat/exhibitions.

    Interestingly changed the slug of Exhibitions to exhibitionss seems to have fixed the problem – http://www.deirdre-edwards.co.uk/exhibitionss – although I can’t leave it like spelt like this it seems to be a temp fix.

    Hmmm

    Still can’t fix this, can anyone help?

    So now i’ve just realised that http://www.deirdre-edwards.co.uk/Exhibitions works, but http://www.deirdre-edwards.co.uk/exhibitions doesn’t.

    Weird cos the slug of the page is definitely ‘exhibitions’….

    Have you edited the category slug to be “Exhibitions” instead of “exhibitions”?

    Hi Beel, yeah I tried this already thanks … but all the rest of my pages start with a lowercase letter… it’s bugging me that this one starts with a cap now!!!!

    I’ve also tried deleting the whole category and creating again, and have checked via phpMyAdmin that there’s nothing wrong either.

    Could this be something to do with the fact that I’ve set my category base to /.. ?
