Re: first things first
My ABC searches wouldn’t work until I disabled the “good” permalinks via
Admin >> Settings >> Permalinks
The only one that would make it work is the default.
Members are still able to use the “good” permalinks.
To combat this issue, I’m not using my admin blog. I’ve created separate blogs (i.e. articles, faq) for each of the categories I would’ve used in the admin blog.
