WP site .htaccess problem, I think (2 posts)

    My WP site has a weird problem. From time to time certain pages are redirected back to the homepage.

    For example, I use the WP Link DIR plugin. The shortcode was added to the resources page. But when clicking on http://www.mydomain.com/resources it redirects back to the homepage.

    My permalink is %postname% and category base is set to category
    My .htaccess reads as follows:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    Any ideas on what's causing the problem?

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Ten theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.
