Support » Fixing WordPress » redirects to page-1

  • Resolved everwill


    I’m having trouble finding help on this type of error because I’m not sure how to describe my problem. I’m integrating WP into my site and I’ve managed to do so successfully on a number of pages called listing-x.php, for example:

    And a slew of similar pages work just fine.

    But when I put nearly identical code into a page called listings.php, on load the page resolved to a new page called “listings.php-1”. Listings.php-1 is a 404-error. So I saved the same code to listings-working.php where it loads just fine. Then I tried to redirect listings.php to listings-working.php … and it just won’t redirect to the new page. Instead, it stubbornly resolves to listing.php-1.

    Any clue what the error is called so I can track down the problem.

  • you may need to empty your trash as wp thinks there are 2 listings.php and is adding the -1 to differentiate

    Great tip …

    I wonder how to empty my trash?

    I have a managed server with Plesk on GoDaddy.

    As far as I can tell the problem only occurs when I insert:


    If you’re talking about just emptying the trash in Posts and Pages, I’ve already done that.

    Just for fun I created a file called listings.php-1 and uploaded that. It still shows as 404.

    Any further suggestions?

    Hmmm … if I knew what to call this problem I might be able to search the forums for a solution.

    Well, you pointed in the right direction in a way. WP did think there were 2 copies. Some way on another there were multiple redirects from listings.php to listings.php-1. I have no idea where they came from but I deleted them and all is well.
