Support » Fixing WordPress » Options php bring up 404 error page

  • Resolved thestealthyfox


    I’m trying to update the options on my theme and when I try to save the options, it takes me to a 404 page.

    I haven’t changed anything on the site and the rest is running fine. I’ve tried to disable all plugins and still no joy.

    Does anyone have any ideas as it’s driving me nuts!

  • Does it effect just the front end or back end only?

    If it doesn’t effect the back end. Try to update your permalinks. Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks

    Ideally, we want to know:

    1. Which theme you’re using
    2. What are you trying to update on the theme options

    Otherwise, try to deactivate the theme and re-activate it. If problem persist, I believe without looking at the issue, it is hard to troubleshoot and pinpoint.


    It’s just the back end. The front end of the site is running fine.

    So essentially, when I click to save any changes on the theme options it takes me to which brings up a 404 error page.

    I’m using the complete theme.

    If I uninstall the theme will it retain all of the edits I’ve made/content I’ve added to the theme?


    For this, I believe the best is to contact the theme developer. If the theme is downloaded from the WordPress directory, you can leave a support ticket related to the theme.

    From the 404, I am guess that there is a missing page or theme options generated by the theme. You can also check the error log from your server.

    Otherwise, kindly create a backup before doing anything like changing theme, re-installing the theme, etc. You can use the Snapshot Backup plugin for example.

    Now I can not update any page without receiving a 404 error page, yet the site still functions.

    I can’t find any details to contact the theme creator.

    Will try backing up and deactivating theme, although very scared about doing this!

    If there are any other ideas in the meantime or if you’ve come across this problem before, please shout!
