Forum Error

  • TTM-ES



    I have a problem with forum at my web, I create a main forum and other subforums him, and in some of these forums there are subforums inside. That is, reaching 3 levels of forums. The issue is that I can only access (even with the admin user), to the first forum, when I try to access one of the sub forums gives me error 404 (as if there were no permissions to access or did not exist). All forums have them public, open and unrestricted.

    Thanks for the help.

    This is a recent issue with wp4.0, and there is a bug fix outstanding for this.

    The Issue

    This gives 404 errors with sub forums for users with default permalinks. This is due to a bug in wp4.0, and netweb is on the case to get this fixed in 4.0.1

    Three wordarounds

    1. Change your permalinks to any of the other settings


    The most often used is ‘postname’

    This will not only fix your issue, but make your links look prettier. However if you have links to your site forums from other sites/emails, these links might break (ie they will come up as 404 errors), but if your choice is between users not accessing, or users complaining that the link in that old email no longer works, then resetting might seem a good idea.

    2. revert to 3.9.2


    for quite a good video on how to do it

    3. Move your sub-forums up a level ie make them all main forums

    and keep monitoring this site for a solution.



    Thanks men 😉

    I have a problem with “postname” permalink, when i checked all he links goes to error 404. I think is it because the WP don’t have access to the file .htaccess, I put the permisions at 775 to try, but have the same problem.. Can you give me some advice?



    Now working permalink, and working forums!
