Correct permalinks and 404-error

WordPress Development Asked by Vlad on November 1, 2020

I have a paid plugin that creates a custom type categories and posts in this categories. I want to get URLs like site_name/category_name/post_name. This plugin forms links like this:

  • List item

for categories – site_name/category_name

  • List item
    for posts – site_name/category_name

I have installed plugin Custom Post Type Permalinks, configured it. When I click on post link, I have a 404 page of theme (not server). But URL is right. In the post edit page the permalink is right too.
Pages shows correctly.
I can’t change any file of paid plugin or theme (it’s already child theme). Can I resolve my problem with .htaccess or m.b. some another way?
P.S. By the way, I’ve already tried to configure permalinks in Settings->Permalinks->Custom structure but result is the same.

One Answer

This is a common problem (that I just finished fixing). It seems to arise in a few different ways. Some people seem to be able to fix it by selecting the default permalink format and then switching back to their preferred one.

In my case, the problem seemed to be that I didn't have mod-rewrite properly enabled. Once I did the steps in this post, the problem was resovled.

I think I may have also made [this change], (Category links suddenly started giving 404 errors), but I'm pretty sure it was fully enabling mod-rewrite that did the trick.
