I'm creating blog page as WordPress for my static PHP website. When blog page URL changes to pretty permalink (example.com/blog/my-post-page), loading contents (not redirecting to index.php, only contents loading and URL will be like http://example.com/blog/my-post-page) of index.php (home page for my site) that is located outside blog folder instead of single.php contents.

When permalink changes to default (example.com/blog/?p=123), it will work perfectly.

I need URL as http://example.com/blog/my-post-page.

EDIT : - I have updated permalink to Custom Structure as /index.php/%postname%/. But now post pages are showing with example.com/blog/index.php/my-post-page.

I think the issue raised with the new WordPress version. (Version 4.2.2). Any solutions to remove index.php from URL ?

My Directory Structure:-

/                                          - Root
/blog                                      - Blog folder
/blog/wp-content/themes/mytheme/           - Theme folder
/blog/wp-content/themes/mytheme/single.php - Post Single page

/index.php                                 - Home page (Loading contents of this file)

My htaccess :-

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /blog/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

When I delete/rename index.php in root folder, page will show not found error.

  • Is the .htaccess in / or /blog (it should be in the latter) – TheDeadMedic Jun 1 '15 at 10:25
  • What does "only contents loading" mean? – s_ha_dum Jun 1 '15 at 14:11
  • @s_ha_dum contents loading means, URL will be the post page what we are requesting for blog. But the contents are from the outside index.php file. – Sree Jun 2 '15 at 3:38
  • @TheDeadMedic .htaccess inside /blog folder. – Sree Jun 2 '15 at 3:38
