Support » Fixing WordPress » WP 5.5: problems with permalinks

  • Hi,
    After upgrading to WP 5.5 I am having problems with custom permalinks.
    For instance this page no longer works:
    https://(mysite)/albums/2/?sort=1

    It automatically gets redirected to:
    https://(mysite)/albums/?sort=1

    So for any paginated section of my site (/2/, /3/) users can no longer access any page beyond the first.

    I tried disabling all my plugins: did not fix the problem.
    I tried re-saving my permalinks under settings / permalinks: did not fix.

    Downgrading back to WP 5.4.2 fixes the problem.

    Great: thanks @dmwebhosting.

    Here is the response.

    Either [47727] / #40773 or [47760] / #45337 would be the possible culprit here. I’m sorry to hear this is causing issues since the latest update.

    That said, the /example/123/ URL structure is reserved in WordPress for pagination, it’s used to display parts of a post separated with the <!–nextpage–> tag, and is not meant to be used for any other purpose.

    So I would recommend changing the numeric part of the /show-listings/654493 request to something else, perhaps /show-listings/?654493 if that works, to avoid conflicts.

    As another possible solution, you can disable the redirect_canonical() function for these requests, that is attached to the template_redirect action by default.
