Support » Fixing WordPress » Posts do exist, but don't show up

  • Resolved maiatoji


    There are posts published in my site, but they don’t show up – neither at the “All posts” list, nor in the site itself (I always get the “This is embarrassing” message).

    I’ve been digging up the threads in this Forum for the last three days, but none of the solutions suggested for troubles similar to mine have worked.

    And yes, I’ve already deactivated all my plugins (which is just Custom Post Types UI), switched to default theme, reinstalled WordPress from a fresh download…

    Thank you for any help.

    Have you reset the permalinks?
    If so maybe try deleting your .htaccess file ( make sure to make a backup first ) and then reset them?

    Can you provide a link to your site please?

    With the posts that are not published, can you make sure that there are no spaces or weird characters in the slug.

    Can you view these posts when you click on the view post from your admin?

    Hi, Christine!

    Thank you for the reply. Yes, I’ve reset my permalinks (several times, actually) and deleted my .htaccess file… My site is currently at

    I cannot see the posts (or pages) on the view post from my admin either. I can edit them, but I can’t access them.

    Thanks again!

    do you have your wordpress installed in a subdirectory? if so it may be that your site’s trying to load content from the wrong place…


    I’ve searched around ( and seems like that’s really the problem…!

    But I’ll have to wait to try to fix it, since the current running website can’t be taken down now :-/

    Anyway, thank you very much for your suggestion, theotherlebowski! I’ll post a follow-up as soon as I can test the solution.

    Uh-oh, that’s not the problem…

    Any other idea?

    Nevermind. That was indeed the problem.

    I’ve repeated the procedure described in the link above to check, and it worked!

    Thank you so much, theotherlebowski! And thank you too, Christine!

    Have a nice week.
