Support » Fixing WordPress » Static page content doesn’t display – “Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.”

  • My static pages have stopped displaying, and instead show “Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.”

    Initially (based on searching here) I thought this might be an .htaccess problem, but that seems to be fine. My post permalinks work OK and I get this error whether I’m accessing the page by permalink or by its id number.

    One of my pages was working fine while two were broken; however, when I updated the working page, it dissapeared too! The content still exists in the admin panel; it’s just not displaying in my blog.

    Any ideas?

  • I’m definitely not sure, but it might be a caching problem. If the permalink url is changed with editing (changing date or title or whatever), the link information in your sidebar or whereever (cached by your browser or a proxy) might link to the old url that is no longer available …

    I didn’t change the titles, and the problem exists even if I go straight to the page, e.g. – which works fine for posts.

    It’s sort of strange, because when I adress a non-existing static page, I won’t get the post-related error message …

    I get the same message. It only happens on pages (not posts) and is theme independent. I have tried the permalinks related fixes and they don’t make a difference either. If there’s any more information that anyone can think of to help diagnose this problem, I’d be happy to try other things.

    There seem to be a fair number of people with this problem, but not enough that it has gotten much attention.

    Do you by chance have the adhesive plugin installed? Though since your posts are showing it may not be the problem at all….

    No, Adhesive isn’t installed but it didn’t occur to me that it could be a plugin (I’m new). The Elegant Category (In)Visibility plugin version was causing this problem for me. I have yet to look for a cure.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    Ah. Well, yes, sometimes the first thing you want to do is disable all your plugins. Glad that part is fixed; I’ve no experience with that plugin, so don’t know what to tell you about fixing it.
