  • Hi smithcreate,

    If you got to Settings, Reading in your WordPress Admin, what do you have your Front Page displays set to?

    Is the Post Page: set to members-area by any chance?

    If that is the case it will override all your slugs and display your post. In which case you will need set up a new page for your blog/post and set that under the Reading Settings.

    Hope that helps, let me know how you get on.

    Front Page is set to display a static page (Home)
    Posts Page is set to Trip Reports which is a child-page of Members Area.

    Oh interesting!

    Could you try taking Trip Reports out of the Member Area and see if that brings the other slugs to useable?

    I removed Trip Reports from being a child of Members Area AND moved it out of the Members Area navigation with no effect.

    All was working fine a few days ago. All plugins and themes are up to date.

    It’s weird that if you click on Newsletter, the URL is correct, but the site is rendering the blog posts from Trip Reports.

    But if you click on Members Area, instead of going to the Members Area page, the website goes to the home page (you can see the URL for the link if you mouse-over the navigation).

    At this point, my only thought is to setup the website locally using MAMP. It’s kinda like a complete do-over, but I’m not sure what other steps to take if disabling the plugins and theme is not working.

    Here’s an update. I had disabled all plugins and went back to a default theme and the pages were still loading incorrect content. That version of the website was running WordPress 4.9.

    I took my local copy of the website, updated all plugins and themes but did not update WordPress to 4.9. My local version of the website is running WordPress 4.8.3. Everything is working fine locally. I uploaded everything to the test server and all is still working fine.

    Since I’m using WooCommerce, Memberships, and Subscriptions plugins/add-ons I have not yet gone in to set content to only be available to specific membership types. I feel that I’m going to have to update WordPress regardless and just cross my fingers that my pages and content are somehow resolved. Though it still doesn’t help me understand why I was having the issues that I was having in the first place.

    Update to my update.

    Everything was working fine at the following URL:

    http://www.smithcreate.com/grotto/

    WordPress and all plugins are up to date.

    Then I changed a page to be password protected. Now when I go to that page, I’m re-directed to the home page.

    http://smithcreate.com/grotto/members-area/database/maps/ (is password protected, but I’m being directed to http://smithcreate.com/grotto/)

    But now the following pages are also being directed to the home page. I can’t understand what is causing this.
