Support » Fixing WordPress » Posts won’t show up when posts permalink is under blog posts page

  • I have configured a static page called “blog”.

    In options-reading, I have set the front page to be another static page, “home”, and posts are set to appear on “blog”. That works fine.

    Under Permalinks, I want to set post permalinks to /blog/%postname%/

    However, when I do this, all individual posts result in a 404 when following the link to their page.

    If I change permalinks to /test/%postname%/, it works fine.

    Is there a way to make this work?

  • Problem solved. The issue was I had set the categories permalink also to /blog/ . Changing it to /blog/topics/ appears to have fixed it.

    I’ve run into the same problem again. I tried setting the permalink structure to:

    /blog/%category%/%postname%/

    with the category base as

    blog

    Surely this should be a dead-obvious use for this feature: group related posts under a topic, with the top level listing those posts, then all posts appearing under that directory.

    Any idea on how to get this working?
