Support » Fixing WordPress » Permalink adding unwanted question mark

  • Hi there,

    all of a sudden, my permalink structure %postname% ist not working anymore. It adds an unwanted question mark at the first position. So for example the url should be https://www.url.com/test-site but it is changed to https://www.url.com/?test-site. This causes a redirection to the home page.

    So I have changed the permalink structure to ?p=123 for now and this seems to be working.

    I am using WordPress 5.0.3 with the The7 theme on PHP 7.2.14 (Apache). Every plugin is up to date. Disabling all plugins and changing to default theme did not work either.

    Why it’s not working?

    Have a read of Using_Permalinks try a custom permalink structure again. If clearing your Permalinks does not alleviate the issue, this could be attributed to anything from a web server configuration to a bad WordPress install.

    I don’t know, why it is not working anymore because I haven’t changed anything the last time on the problematic website.

    Yes, I have read that and changed permalink structure to custom as you said, but unfortunately without success. Absolutely no other structure is working anymore than ?page_id=X

    Every other website on our server is working fine though.
