[resolved] WP redirects archives by date to home page (3 posts)

    I don't know what I did, but I did something wrong. When someone tries to access my archives (e.g. http://lelectronlibre.net/2008/03/) it redirects to my home page. Same thing when I try to access the archives from the "modify post" admin panel.

    Lately I modified some things to make SEO better, but I just don't know what went wrong. Here is my .htaccess

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    # If subdomain www exists, remove it first
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.([^\.]+\.[^\.]+)$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://%1/$1 [R=301,L]
    # If requested resource does not exist as a file
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    # and does not end with a period followed by a filetype
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !..+$
    # and does not end with a slash
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/$
    # then add a trailing slash and redirect
    RewriteRule (.*) $1/ [R=301,L]
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    which is in public_html folder. I tried to put back the original one but it changed nothing. This must be something else.

    Anyone has any idea what can be the cause of this?


    p.s. BTW, should I put .htaccess in the root or in public_html? Thanks
    p.s.1 I don't blog in the root, in case it changes anything. By the way, my categories work fine: http://lelectronlibre.net/category/enjeux-sociaux/ but http://lelectronlibre.net/2008/02/ does not work...

    Ok I found the problem. This was caused by an option in Robots Meta Configuration that was disabling the archives. Sorry for the trouble. LOL
