I installed the simple press plugin as instructed and set up also as instructed. When I click on the button to add new topic I'm sent to a page with 404 error. I've tried several things and nothing changes. I do have custom permalinks, which I have to keep because this is a site and blog and if I change them the pages don't work. What am I missing?
OK - well there are many reasons for 404s which just means that the urls can not be found.
So let's start with some basic questions...
Are you using any sort of redirection plugin (such as 'Permalink Redirect' for example) or the 'Yoast SEO' plugin?
Have you ever had another forum installed on the site that may have left a sub-folder called 'forum' behind?
And a link to your forum page might prove useful...
Ah.. it might be that .htm being appended. I assume that is being done by some plugin and it is quite probably not taking into account the SP rewrite rules that are added to the WP rules.
Not sure I understand why you would want to add a false .htm to each url but - well - it is there. What plugin doing that please?
It could be that. I "inherited" this site and the following were installed for some unknown reason:
.htm on PAGES
I don't have a problem deactivating Redirection, but I do with .htm due to current SEO - I think. So I deactivated Redirection and I still get the same thing which makes me think it's go to by .htm
