    I have several multisite WordPress environments which I manage. After the update to the latest version of WP, Eversion 4.9.6, we have had problems with sites whose permanent links are personalized with day and postname and when accessing any input gives a “Page not found” error.

    The solution that we have seen at the administration level is simply to go to Settings – Permanent Links of the blog, and clicking on “Save” the problem is already solved.

    Nothing happens if you have few sites, but in our organization we have many sites and many multisite platforms, so the number of incidents can be very high users complaining.

    I beg you to look at this problem to get a new version to correct it as soon as possible.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Is it ONLY day/postname?

    I’ve been using year/postname and just postname and not seen any issues…

    Good morning @ipstenu

    Thank you very much for answering.

    It happens to me with the sites that are configured as permanent links of the style /% year% /% monthnum% /% day% /% postname% /

    As I have been looking at WordPress forums, the problem with permanent links is generated by WordPress version updates, or by some installed plugin, or by site migration. The solution proposed is to reset the permanent links. Simply log into your WP Dashboard, then go to the permalinks settings. Change your settings away from the standard setting, for example to numeric, then save changes. Now simply select your standard setting again, and save the changes.

    This solution is fine when you have a non-multisite WordPress platform or you have a multisite platform with few sites inside. In my case it is more complex, since I have several Multisite platforms with an average of 100 sites within each, so it is impossible to enter each one and perform the action previously discussed. My question is whether there is any way to reset the permanent links at the Network level and that they are replicated to the sites.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    I’m familiar with the fix.

    I use Multisite as well, which is why I was surprised. Actually, WordPress.org AND .com are on Multisite. So … this is weird.

    Is there a common plugin to all these networks?

    Marking resolved as it’s been 2 months and this is the only instance. It’s more likely this is a one-off problem.
