If you’ve recently updated your RealHomes theme to the latest version and are seeing those pesky 404 errors when trying to visit Property, Agent, or Agency pages on your WordPress site, don’t worry! Many folks encounter this issue after a theme update. Fortunately, the solution is quite straightforward and involves tweaking your website’s permalink settings. In this article, we’ll walk you through the steps to get rid of those 404 errors for Custom Post Types on your RealHomes-based website.
Step-by-Step Guide: How to Get Rid of 404 Errors on Property, Agent, or Agency Pages
1. Log in to Your WordPress Dashboard: Start by logging in to your WordPress admin panel using your username and password.
2. Head to the “Settings” Section: Once you’re in, look for the “Settings” menu on the left side of your dashboard. Hover your mouse over it, and a submenu will pop up.
3. Access the “Permalinks” Settings: Click on “Permalinks” from the submenu. This will take you to the Permalinks settings page, where you can set up your website’s URL structure.
4. Save Your Permalink Settings Twice: On the Permalinks settings page, you’ll find various options for URL structures. No need to change anything here. Just scroll to the bottom and hit the “Save Changes” button.
- Important Note: After clicking “Save Changes,” scroll back to the top of the page and click the “Save Changes” button once more. This double save ensures that your permalink structure gets updated correctly.
5. Clear Your Website’s Cache (If You Use Caching): If you’re using a caching plugin or have server-side caching enabled, it’s a good idea to clear your website’s cache. This step helps ensure that your changes take effect right away.
6. Test Your Property, Agent, or Agency Pages: After following these steps, go ahead and check your Property, Agent, or Agency pages on your website. You should no longer run into those annoying 404 errors when trying to access these Custom Post Type pages.
Updating the RealHomes theme to the latest version can sometimes trigger 404 errors on Property, Agent, or Agency pages due to changes in WordPress’s internal link structure. But fixing this issue is a breeze. Just head over to “Settings” → “Permalinks” in your WordPress Dashboard, save your permalink settings twice, and you’ll refresh the link structure, banishing those 404 errors. Following these steps’ll ensure a seamless and error-free experience for your website visitors.
