hi, i’ve just noticed that my site has some problems with shortcodes like
[contact-form-7 id=”782″ title=”Contact form 1″]
the pages containing shortcodes worked fine when their status is “draft”
but when i published them, they pulled a 404
does this has anything to do with cache? i have w3 total cache installed..
no – I don’t think so. Please try to flush the rewrite rules. Go to Settings > Permalinks and hit the “Save” button. Make sure that you’re using a valid permalink structure.
i’ve just done that,, and i don’t think it’s working. btw please define “valid permalink structure”
You can read more about permalinks here http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks#Permalink_Types
Try changing your current permalink settings to default and if that fixes the issue, the link above has a section on fixing permalink issues as well.
