[resolved] Why is my homepage redirecting to another page? (10 posts)

    I have checked my settings and it says the homepage should be my blog posts, but its not.
    I own the site http://www.sweet-hangover.net and it directs to a different page, which obviously shouldn't be the page it goes to.
    Someone please help me?

    It looks like you have WP installed in the subdirectory /hosting. Your site s redirecting, maybe not WP.
    So what is in your main directory's .htaccess????

    Could be the same issue I was having. Do you have the Redirection plug-in installed? That could be the culprit:

    Since upgrading to WP 3.0, the root (/) or home page of the site is redirected to newly created pages.

    You can remove the redirection(s) by going to Tools > Redirection > Groups > Modified Posts and deleting the latest entry listed as "/" without quotes.

    My guess is this is a bug in plugin when running WP 3.0. This should be a good workaround until the author fixes it.

    IMPORTANT!

    I had the same problem, and deleted the / from Groups as suggested.

    People need to know, however, that this removes ALL of your redirects! So save them ahead of time.

    Luckily, I thought to look in the log to salvage them.

    ahhh, I spent this whole time blaming GoDaddy for the problem, but the redirection plugin was the problem the entire time. Thanks so much for the info themovieman.
