Support » Fixing WordPress » “Previous Entries” link on Manage pages directs to blog

  • I have an issue I haven’t been able to figure out.
    When I am managing pages or posts in my dashboard, if the current post selection contains more than 1 page of posts, the “Previous Entries” link goes to my blog rather than page 2 of the entries in the manager.

    IE if I select March 2003 which has more than 1 page of entries, and want to view the rest of the entries in the editor (page 2) it brings me to that page in my blog (page 2 of March 2003) instead.

    It’s not specific to a theme and it’s not due to the permalinks.

  • I’m suspecting this has to do with the .htaccess which I’m having some issues with.

    If I use the custom permalinks I want, it tells me it can’t edit my .htaccess even though the permissions are set correctly and it does exist. I’m not entirely sure which directory the file should go in and I see comments saying it should be in either the root directory “/” or the wp root directory “wp/” and even some that say it should be in “wp-admin” so I’ve tried it everywhere.

    I also cannot access it from the files manager because it apparently doesn’t exist (it does).

    So I try to edit it via FTP; however, when I do this, I cannot access my site. I get a 403 error.

    Still, when I use default permalinks and there’s nothing to add to the .htaccess, the link directs to the blog.

    I think I have discovered the culprit. I had wanted my blog to be named blog.php (for now) in another directory (the WP files being in wp/) except this was adding /blog.php/ to my dashboard links.

    So I can just set it up at wp/index.php except when I go into my dashboard options and try to change it back to index.php, I am directed to another 403 error. What’s going on?

    Google showed me the answer to the 403 issue (.htaccess) so I changed it to index.php within the WP folder and everything works. I guess you just can’t rename your blog page anything but index.php?

    I had the exact same problem. Solved by going to Options and removing the www from the blog address.
