My homepage isn't working if I select the "Post name" setting. Everything else works fine.

When you visit www.clasificadosvallemedio.com, it doesn't load. It should look like: www.clasificadosvallemedio.com/inicio which is my homepage.

The problem started after I changed the URL of my website (Settings > General > Site URL/URL). I was using a subdomain (ex: clasificados.example.com) and I changed it to clasificadosvallemedio.com. I didn't move any files, etc.

  • I see your website is loading fine at this moment, were you able to resolve your question? Did my answer help? – Ethan Jinks O'Sullivan Aug 25 '16 at 15:38

I'm not able to visit either link successfully. I get a redirect loop error:


Changing the URL of your website in Settings > General > Site URL is not enough unfortunately. You will still have your post content with your sub domain URL (clasificados.example.com) causing your website to not load properly.

Once you've downloaded and imported your database to your localhost. Follow these steps:

  1. Go and download Interconnect IT's Database Search & Replace Script here
  2. Unzip the file and drop the folder where your WordPress is installed (the root) and rename the folder to replace (screenshot)
  3. Navigate to the new folder you created in your browser (ex: http://clasificadosvallemedio.com/replace) and you will see the search/replace tool
  4. It should be pretty self-explanatory up to this point:
    • search for…: enter your old subdomain (http://clasificados.example.com)
    • replace with…: - enter your new domain (http://clasificadosvallemedio.com)

You can click the dry run button under actions to see what it will be replacing before you execute the script. Once you're done be sure to remove the /replace/ folder.


Paste your WordPress Address (URL) and your Site Address (URL). Plus give where you installed WP (maybe is this a problem, maybe not).


  • While this is mainly where the URLs needs to be set to change, it's also advised to replace all of the old URLs on a database level to ensure all of the content is displaying correctly. – Ethan Jinks O'Sullivan Aug 25 '16 at 1:01
