  • Hi people,

    This is really frustrating me now. im trying to implement a blog on a friends site that was already set up as static pages, i managed to get the page into place but when you click on a post title, or in a “latestpost widget” it redirects to the home page. heres the link

    Please could someone point me in the right direction??

    Cheers in advance.

    Try resetting your custom permalinks back to the default setting. If this works, then review Using_Permalinks before setting a custom permalink structure back up again.

    It really worked. Clicked on the title of the first post and it took me straight to that single post’s page.

    right ok…sorry im getting confused, its not working for me…. ok i now have the structure set at /%year%/%postname%/

    could you try it now and let me know if this is working, because this isnt working for me…cleared browser cache etc still nothing,…just keeps re-directing me to the homepage.

    Hmm – now it’s broken again. Can you try resetting your custom permalinks back to the default setting and deleting the .htaccess file in your WordPress root folder?

    ok now it is set at

    which is what it was when you said it was working

    this just reverts back to home page….
    so not this one…..

    ok now it is set to default, and deleted .htaccess

    the page id is 594…

    i just tried and nothing….still re-directing back to home page..

    this is my code from my child theme “single.php” I dont think there is anything missing….esmi have you give up on me lol..

    esmi have you give up on me

    Please try to be patient. Even forum volunteers have to eat, sleep etc.

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.
