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.
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.
