    I decided return to WordPress 3.4.2 and Flashlight 1.7 :-(

    No solution for the combination of Plugin+theme1.9+3.5 wordpress :-(( When works Blog, portfolio show 404 error, if portfolio works, blog doesn’t…..


    Did you try to rewrite/flush the permalinks? Go to Settings > permalinks and select the default permalink structure. Then hit the save button and reload the settings page. Then switch back to a custom “pretty” permalink structure and it the save button again. This will force WP to rewrite the htaccess file and to save the new rewrite rules in the databnase.


    Hi Dude,

    I had the same problem a couple weeks ago and took the advice to flush the permalinks settings and this resolved the issue I had on and not being able to see the Portfolio items.

    The issue I have is that it has happened again. I’ve done the same solution and all is well but I wanted to know if there’s any reason it would happen again and/or keep happening in the future? I wanted to have a viable answer for the client I built the site for.



    Hi alanaburton,

    Unfortunately is just an issue wordpress has sometimes. I’ve never really dug into why it happens but the short version is wordpress can cause issues with the .htaccess file and ‘flushing the permalinks’ just allows wordpress to re-set the file.

    You could potentially change the permissions on the file so that wordpress can’t modify it, that should keep your permalink settings but would just make them unable to be set by the options within wordpress unless the permissions are changed back.




    I removed Bullet Proof Security plugin and the W3Cache plugin and my blank / 404 errors fixed them selves


    Thanks for the additional tips :)
