Support » Plugin: ThirstyAffiliates Affiliate Link Manager » Plugin breaks existing links, leads to 404 pages

  • Resolved danielmd1


    When I install the ThirstyAffiliates plugin, it automatically breaks all existing links and pages. For instance, if you go to and click on any of the main navigation links in the header (except for “home” which works) you’ll see it redirects to 404 error page.

    I deactivated all plugins and it seems to be directly related to the Thirsty plugin. Please help! This is a LIVE site with LOTS of readers.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi @danielmd1,

    Woah, that sounds very unusual! I definitely shouldn’t be doing that at all.

    Can you please try activating ThirstyAffiliates, then deactivating all other plugins?

    If it’s still happening, try temporarily switching theme to the default theme like TwentySeventeen.

    This sounds like a plugin conflict to me, so hopefully we can pin point what it causing it and resolve it. I suspect another plugin there isn’t flushing it’s rewrite rules correctly.

    The other thing you could try is to regenerate permalinks manually, just goto Settings->Permalinks and hit save. This should rewrite your .htaccess file.

    Hope one of these helps, let me know how you go.
