    Hi everyone!

    A few months ago I changed my permalinks from /year/month/title to just /title, and I redirected in the .htaccess, however today I realized that my archives doesn’t work. I click whichever date and it just redirects to the homepage. What can I do to get my archives to work again? I use the eleven40 theme.

    Thank you so much for your help!

    Oo boy, you have to really be careful when you edit your .htaccess files, it’s very powerful stuff. Take a look at this post: http://surefirewebservices.com/tutorials/category-redirection-for-wordpress

    I would try to revert your htaccess to it’s original state, then follow the instructions on the post, you should be good after that.

    Thank you! It was indeed the redirection of my .htaccess-file since it automatically stripped down the dates on everything, including my archives. The post you suggested didn’t help me either, but I found a plugin called “Permalink Finder” instead. It works, but not quite the solution I was hoping for.

    This is the line I entered in the .htaccess:

    RedirectMatch 301 ^/([0-9]{4})/([0-9]{2})/(.*)$ http://www.cocopia.net/$3
    
    Would anyone know what I should remove/replace/add to not make it redirect my archives as well?
