I have a page named park&read and a post named park&read.

WP removes the &, so the post and the page share the slug parkread.

Since the page has a parent-page, its permalink is /servizi/parkread/

Since the permalink structure of my posts is /news/%postname%/, the permalink of the post is /news/parkread/

The issue is that when trying to view the post's detail, WP redirects me to the page.

I don't get why two different permalinks lead to such a conflict. Is this normal behavior?

Could the cause be that I don't have a category_base set in my permalkin settings?

  • I can't answer that question, but an easy solution would be to change the slug to a different one for either the post or the page – Prasun Jajodia Apr 12 '17 at 8:43
  • @PrasunJajodia ofc, but I'd like to know the cause as one issue might lead to bigger problems later – Cec Apr 12 '17 at 8:53
  • this is not a default wordpress behavior in which even if there is some bug posts should have priority over pages, therefor you should lokk in your plugins/themes to check if any of them cause it.... turn off all plugns revert to core theme and then activate one by one. – Mark Kaplun Apr 12 '17 at 9:24
