Support » Fixing WordPress » Tags in blogposts is resulting in 404

  • Can someone please, please explain to me why most of my “tags” in blogposts is resulting in 404?
    Is it because of the theme i’m using (ColorMag, free version) or a general “bug” in WP itself? Do i have to only use the “predefined” tags in the theme? *hope not*

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Is it because of the theme i’m using…

    To find out if this is a theme or a plugin conflict try:

    Please attempt to disable all plugins, and use one of the default (Twenty*) themes. If the problem goes away, enable them one by one to identify the source of your troubles.

    If you can install plugins, install “Health Check”: https://wordpress.org/plugins/health-check/ On the troubleshooting tab, you can click the button to disable all plugins and change the theme for you, while you’re still logged in, without affecting normal visitors to your site.

    Okay, I’ll test this.
    But will it change or add anything to my current theme (ColorMag) when testing another theme?

    It shouldn’t automatically.

    If you are concerned, Backup. If you haven’t already done, always backup everything (including your database) before doing any actions, just in case something really goes wrong. You can never have enough backups!

    I just tried to change the theme, apparently 2 widgets disappeared from ColorMag.
    Will try to fix it later.

    But I still had problems with several tags not going anywhere (404).
    So there is nothing wrong with either the plugins or the theme.
