    Hey guys, I’m currently having an issue with WordPress 4.1.1 on localhost. I’m building a theme for a jewelry maker which will have according categories such as ear-rings, necklaces, bracelets etc.

    The problem is that:

    loads just fine as it should, but the permalink for the post is:

    which returns a 404.

    I took a few screenshots to help explain.

    1. my current permalink settings
    2. the post title and permalink
    3. url + src of the url which I want (although the canonical link refers to old structure)
    4. 404 on supposed permalink which matches the permalink in the 2nd image

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You might want to try putting a “.” minus the quotes for the category base see if that works.


    Actually, after reviewing general functionality of the rest of the site, I realized that I needed to set the custom structure option to /%category%/%postname%

    I had mistakenly added this setting to the category base instead.
