[Resolved] Forum root returns my WP Archive page!
Hi I have a WP/BuddyPress installation that I have just added bbPress to. Unfortunately I couldn’t migrate bbpress to buddypress and so deleted bbpress (and my buddypress forums) to go for a fresh install.
My issue is that when I navigate to the root forum directory it returns my WP archives page!
I had a related (probably) issue with my blog a while back, where the blog would return a 404, so I had to rename the root of my blog to not match my category base!
I do appreciate that this is probably a WP issue but I have had no luck getting a response on the WP support forums.
I’ve tried refreshing permalinks, changing themes, deactivating plugins (incl supercache) etc but to no avail.
The site I’m managing is for a worthy non-profit and I have little resources to pay anyone to assist me with this – I’m pulling my hair out on this one.
Please help if you have any suggestions on either of these issues.
Here’s an excerpt from my old WP support post…
“My website has developed an issue with the pagination, and/or archives depending on setup, which causes 404 errors (not sure when this first developed).
All works fine when my blog url is different to my category base e.g.
blog = ‘cfmblog’ (url = http://mywebsite/cfmblog/page/2/)
category base = ‘blog’ (url = http://mywebsite/blog/articles/environment/)
When I set both to ‘blog’ (which is ideally what I would like to keep) I get 404 errors when navigating to page 2 of the blog. When this occurs the archives work fine.”
