Home page randomly redirects to another page

  • Hoi Sze Lam


    I have a blog, hosted on my own domain which has been working fine for awhile now (almost two years now).

    I was creating a new page as an register page for adding members. This is done through Buddypress plugin.

    But now my homepage (which was previously my latest posts) is forwarding to this new subscribe page instead of showing my posts. My database is intact since all my posts are available if i go to the urls directly. I checked my .htaccess file which looks fine (I don’t really know how to use them, but I’ve seen them before and it looks fine). I tried undoing everything, including deleting the page but that gives a 404 error.

    I don’t understand how, its not that easy to randomly forward your homepage… at least not in my knowledge. It also only happens for select users. Any help or ideas appreciated.

    P.S.: I have everything updated to the latest including plugins…

    This is my site:

    Please let me know.

    Kind Regards,

    Following up on this topic:

    I’ve received a heads up from the Google Webmaster Product forums support suggesting that my redirection issue is potentially a buddypress related problem.!topic/webmasters/l60LFtvlQ90

    Anyone got any ideas as to how to fix this?



    I don’t have an answer for you but is Guest Post a blank page, posted with default settings (viewable by all, etc.) In other words you created the page and all you entered was the title and clicked publish.

    Also, is your index-register.php file in this folder..


    Also, it’s permissions are 0644 or the same as your other files in the same (members) folder?

    Also, make sure for testing purposes that index-register.php is the exact same as the template in bp-legacy, to rule out there being something broken with the code in your customized version.

    Thanks Hastig for getting back to me. I’ve received a response from the Google Webmaster Product Forums that this is not a Buddypress issue but a Google Analytics content experiments issue. Have fixed the problem!

    Thanks for your help nonetheless!
