I am getting 404 errors on all pages however I have multiple custom post types et up and these are working correctly. I have tried all the usual fixes like htaccess file, flushing the rewrite links but to no avail. I seem to be able to get pages working but have broken custom types or custom types working but no pages. Any ideas gratefully accepted!
It sounds like you're using "pretty permalinks" with
which means that your "news" post type will be first up in the permalink structure, whereas
The other possibility (without knowing more about your situation) is that you've recently moved your site. In which case you might need to "relocate" your site. See here.
Hope something there is helpful. I know how frustrating those 404's can be...
