Hello again, my favorite theme developers!
I have been having a strangely intermittent problem with certain page URLs not directing to the correct page, just to the 404 error page.
From what I’ve observed, sometimes the misdirect comes after a new Social Article is published. Usually editing the page info (erasing and retyping the same the url slug) fixes the problem. Recently this has no longer been working.
When I contacted my hosting service for troubleshooting, they advised I keep editing the URL slug and decided the problem was “theme related”.
The two pages I’ve found to be affected are the social articles page ( https://historforum.com/blog/ ) and the gamification user points/award page ( https://historforum.com/points-bank-badges/ ).
Any insight into what might be causing this problem?
Thanks in advance!March 14, 2023 at 00:04 #44540
Could you make sure that all your permalink structure is properly set? You can find out more about this by navigating to Settings > Permalinks.
Also, I would recommend to flush your rewrite rules as it looks like your website has a hard time to process URLs. To do this, you can simply re-save your permalinks settings (Settings > Permalinks) or install and activate Rewrite Rules Inspector (https://wordpress.org/plugins/rewrite-rules-inspector/) and flush your rules by going to Tools > Rewrite Rules.
Here is a complete article on how rewrite rules are handled by WordPress and how to try to manage them : https://permalinkmanager.pro/blog/fix-wordpress-404-error-flush-rewrite-rules/.
Hope this will solve your issue :).
