I started a blog with the permalink structure:
…and then after a bunch of posts decided I needed this blog to be:
…instead. (Old static site still sending traffic to the html versions)
So I changed the permalink structure, made sure it saved and I deleted my old .htaccess file too.
I simply can’t fathom what the heck is going on now!
* When I create or edit a post, it shows the .html in the permalink preview.
* When I click on any link to any post from any page across the site, it takes me to a 404 page with the .html on the end.
* But only when I strip the .html off my address bar does it take me to the post.
–> Posts can only be viewed without the .html, but every part of wordpress says that it needs the .html, both frontside and back.
This is happening to every post, both the new ones and the old ones, and the new ones were NEVER without the .html. They were made with it and the edit page shows that this still is their permalink.
W… T.. F…?
Again, the .htaccess file has been wiped away & remade, so I’m at a loss. Anyone? Please, any guesses at all?
