    Categories Showing a Blank Page, by lattesandstories

    Hello there,

    I’m creating a membership writing community site, and I’ve used Categories to create “pages” for posts tagged with “Blog Posts” and a feed for recent story postings with the category “Story-Feed”. I added the categories to my navigation menu so that when a user clicked on it, the link would take them to the url: “mysite.com/BLOG-POSTS” or “mysite.com/STORY-FEED”, and up until yesterday or the day before it was working perfectly fine.

    Then I happened to click on the “Blog Posts” menu option…and I get a blank page saying “It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching can help.”

    I have no idea why it stopped working. The same goes for my category “Story Feed”. As I said, this is a membership site so in order to view the Story Feed, you have to be logged into the site. The Blog, however, is opened to the public. I’m using the Ultimate Member Plugin to build the membership, and I’ve checked and re-checked my permissions for these categories on both my Menu and the actual Categories directory, and everything is set up appropriately. It was working perfectly fine before, even with the membership restrictions, so I don’t know how nor why it would suddenly stop working :/

    I haven’t changed anything to the permalinks for the categories or anything on the actual posts. The only thing I can think of is that I recently installed the Toolset Types plugin to create some custom taxonomies, but I only created new taxonomies and haven’t touched the categories; plus, the Categories taxonomy still shows up in my Dashboard, just as before, and contains all of my categories that I’d created way before installing the new plugin (meaning I don’t see how the new plugin affected the Categories).

    I only happened to notice my Category pages weren’t working by chance clicking on them in my menu, so I don’t know the exact time they stopped working. Please, I’ve searched through Google trying to figure out the problem, but to no avail. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
