I just got notified about a problem with my site. After I’ve added a “home” button in the menu it links to the front page but whenever one presses the “page 2 or 3″ navigation it gets a 404 Page Not Found error.
Here’s the slug: http://larssonpatrik.com/freebies (link working but removed from menu, press the 2 or 3 in navigation to see what I’m talking about)
Note: The “Freebie” slug/page uses a Dynamic Template, might this be the cause of the problem? As people tend to press the home button rather than the logo, it would be quite nice to have.
Any suggestions on how to fix this?
Thanks guys!December 12, 2011 at 7:34 am #58306
Please create me a wp admin account and send me the login data to: (Email address hidden if logged out) – I’ll look into it.December 12, 2011 at 12:41 pm #58307December 12, 2011 at 12:47 pm #58308
it’s indeed a problem with the slug. You can’t use the same slug for a page AND as custom post type slug (in your case this page: http://larssonpatrik.com/getfreebies and the portfolio items had the same page permalink/slug called “freebies”). WP is confused then and returns 404 errors. I renamed the page permalink from http://larssonpatrik.com/freebies to http://larssonpatrik.com/getfreebies and now it works correct. You can also name the page http://larssonpatrik.com/freebies and the portfolio item slug i.e. “freebiesitems”, etc.
PS: I hope you’ll release the new icon pack soon – the preview icons here: http://larssonpatrik.com/freebies/patricons-part-1-png-2 look great :)December 12, 2011 at 1:12 pm #58309
Thanks for the help and for fixing the problem for me :) I’ll consider the “slug” change.
PS: Thanks! :) I’m actually working on them at the moment and they should be available before christmas ;)December 12, 2011 at 2:30 pm #58310December 12, 2011 at 10:56 pm #58311
Btw, encoutered another problem. How do I point my RSS feed to the portfolio items? I guess I need to add a little something to be able to get a feed URL in the first place, right? Or where can I find the portfolio RSS URL?
I’ve lost a few subscribers due to this = not goodDecember 13, 2011 at 9:00 am #58312
you can use following link:December 13, 2011 at 9:15 am #58313
Wow, that were probably the simplest 100% working answer ever. :)
Thanks yet again, you’ve completely made my week!
Have a fantastic day! :DDecember 13, 2011 at 6:30 pm #58314
