#9707 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

tag permalinks not working

Reported by: jchronowski93 Owned by: ryan
Milestone: Priority: low
Severity: normal Version: 2.7.1
Component: Permalinks Keywords: reporter-feedback
Focuses: Cc:


I am having a problem with tags.
If you click on a tag then even when there are posts that use this tag they will not show up unless you create a matching category. so link http://www.juanitachronowski.com/jdcblog/?tag=funding will not work as I have no category called funding to match but http://www.juanitachronowski.com/jdcblog/?tag=detroit will work because I created a category called detroit. It does not matter if the category has posts that use it or even if you choose to list the category only that it is there at all. So I don't want hundreds of categories if I use hundreds of keywords(tags). How can I fix this?
This is a great source of headache.

not related to #5433 in any way imo. works fine on my end in 2.7.1 and 2.8 trunk, too.

more debug information might be needed be needed to debug whatever is occurring. can you confirm the issue after disabling all plugins and switching to kubrick?

ok sounded like the same issue to me. OK will try suggestions to debug. ... OK when ALL plug-ins are deactivated and theme is changed to default then tags seem to work. Where is the query that runs. I can fix if I know what file displays the records.

"when ALL plug-ins are deactivated and theme is changed to default then tags seem to work" -- then the ticket belongs to whoever authored the theme or plugin that is causing the mess, rather than in here.

#7 @Denis-de-Bernardy

the query happens in wp-includes/query.php, but it's really a plugin (or the theme) that is messing around with it.

#8 follow-up: @jchronowski93

How could this happen? I understand the loop but is there some other hierarchy that I need to pay attention to? The query is the same not included in the theme, than it is something in what happens when other things are running? I do have a few plugins that I could check on if it is one or another instead of deactivating all of them I will try one at a time. But the ones I suspect provide a needed feature.

Replying to jchronowski93:

How could this happen?

dunno... but the culprit plugin/theme author might know, depending on the filters he used, etc. keep in mind that a lot of the plugins and themes are written by people who are barely learning to code.

I have been writing code since 95 and still have so much to learn. I am new to WordPress. I figured out the culprit category visibility by ipeat but I installed another plugin that does similar thing and this one allows my tags to work. It was updated yesterday 5/1 and it was one that previously would not work.
