Categories No More Working

resolved (5 posts) (3 voices)

  1. Hello,
    Is there a category cache? All categories were working before now they deliver 404 errors. I attach a screen shot. There are 8 posts in this category. If I want to rename them they say the slug was in use already but it's not true.

    NOT FOUND error.

    This category redirects to a page. It does it automatically, seems to be a confusion about names.

    It redirects here:

    Must category slugs be absolutely unique in a site to avoid that?

    You see the links to the Blog categories here on the right sidebar:

    You can click them all, none of them works, and there is content in all of them.
    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards,

  2. Hi Pierre!

    Yes, they should be unique but WP actually won't even allow you to create a new category with the same slug (as far as I know).

    Have you changed your permalinks recently? Also, try disabling your plugins (are you using any translation plugin?), and reseting your permalinks structure.

  3. Thanks for your great ideas always! Problem entirely solved after Saving again the Permalinks. Now I have another little problem, something I really don't understand. Please look here at the sentence in the browser's title bar (above the URL):

    It's written 'The Vibrant Universe of Pierre F. Walter'. But in the settings I have changed that long ago to 'The Universe of Pierre Fred Walter'. Do you have any idea where the home page title comes from? On other all pages it's correct.

    Thanks in advance.
    Best regards,

    You can set the homepage title in Dashboard -> your theme -> SEO,

  5. Thanks so much. Nothing was in there but I had put it in ALL IN ONE SEO plugin, and changed it now.
    Thanks again and best regards,
