First of all I want to say that I like your theme very much.
However, I do have 1 problem:
I developed my site on a test environment and after that I moved it with backupbuddy to the new domain.
At first it seemed to wrk, but s soon as I do one small modification to the settings of the theme no page is working anymore (posts are). F.e. when I change the top banner message only, no page works anymore. I even used the pluging Search and replace, but that didn’t help either.
Can this be becasue of the theme or should I seek elsewehere for the cause of this problem?
Thanks in advance

I think I know what caused the problem: the test site and the production site are in the same database, so I think the copy with backupbuddy went not 100% correct. I will try otherwise, by putting them in a 100% seperate environment and then let you know if it is solved.September 16, 2013 at 9:56 pm #161930September 17, 2013 at 12:22 am #161969
It looks that there is something going wrong because of the theme.
I did seperate the environments completely and did the clone/copy at first once more with backupbuddy. Same result: it worked fine untill I changed a theme option.
Then I did the copy the manual way:
download files via ftp
Create new database
change wp-options table domain name
upload new wp-config
search and replace domainnames
again everything went fine, untill I changed something in the theme options.
The strange thing is that when I edit a page and click on view, it also gives a 404. But, as said, only for pages, not for posts.
i am not 100% sure it is theme related, because when I chagne themes (after the problem occurs), the problem persists.
Pff, already cost me 4 hours of testing…
Would be very nice if some one could point me in the right direction.September 17, 2013 at 9:40 am #162144
Did you change the permalink settings? Please refer to this link on how to fix permalink changes.
Deactivate all plugins.

I have found what caused the problem: it was my most love and one of the best plugins in the world, WordPress SEO plugin from Yoast, my fellow country man…
After de-activating and re-activating this plugin, everything works fine.
Stays strange to me that the problem only occurs when I copy the site and then change 1 setting in your theme settings.

It really is abracadabra:
I thought it worked now, but everytime I make a change to the theme ti doesn’t work anymore. deactivating and reactivating wordpress seo plugin doesn’t work anymore, but when I deactivate and reactivate all plugins it works again, just untill I make a change again to the theme….
Just for being sure, I changed the original site (test site) and now there I have the same problem….So, it has nothing to do with copying the site….
Now I have to fidn out whcih plugin I installed as last.

Chips, this is really very frustrating: now it doesn’t work while WPML is deactivated. It’s like the site is haunted.
I really don’t follow the logisc anymoreSeptember 17, 2013 at 10:22 pm #162539September 18, 2013 at 10:58 am #162847
Can you confirm if Angular theme is not compatible with WPML and if so, if you plan to make it compatible?
