Support » Fixing WordPress » Page redirects to category archives

  • This page displays the category archives instead of the page. It was displaying properly at one time but several months ago started displaying the category archives and I have no idea why.

    I have WordPress 4.9.10 in Multisite using a child theme. I am using Yoast v9.7

  • Sounds like you made a change to the permalink settings under
    Settings → Permalinks that changed the structure of the urls for category archive pages.

    Hope this helps.

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. That is likely what caused the issue you are having. Have you attempted to change it back?

    I tried changing it back to domain.com/%postname% and the page loads properly now. I originally used only /%postname% but sometimes later links to the posts stopped working so I changed it to /%category%/%postname% and inserted the category name into the lake and they were working.

    When using a Permalink structure such as: domain.com/%postname%

    is the proper way to link to a post like domain.com/category/post or domain.com/post
