Last summer I wrote about the Redirection Plugin and how it can assist when moving a site to a new domain or directory.
Recently, however, I ran into an error where when a new blog post was published that post would become the front page of the site. I wasn’t sure how to fix it other than turning off the plugin, which wasn’t that useful when I had it set up to redirect pages so vistors didn’t get 404 errors.
Finally, I discovered the setting that I needed to turn off to avoid this problem.
- Go to Tools > Redirection
- At the top of the page are a group of links that say Redirection, Groups, Modules, Logs, Options, Support. Click on Groups.
- Click on Edit Group to the right of Modified Posts
- Uncheck the enabled box, which is turned on by default, and then save. This will stop new posts from being redirected to the home page.
That’s all you have to do to correct this problem but it sure had me stumped for awhile.
