I generate archives using wp_get_archives() and get list of all my archives. But when I click one of the links its always redirect me to front-page.php which is www.mydomainexample.com.

I've created an archive.php file in my directory in case you are wondering. I also saved changes for permalinks.

In my case I want to redirect to year/date. The links that wp_get_archives() generate already what I'm looking for www.mydomainexample.com/2020/12 but it always redirect to my homepage www.mydomainexample.com.

What am I missing?

  • What do you mean you get redirected to front-page.php. You never access templates directory. Do you mean you’re being redirected to the homepage? Apr 19, 2021 at 8:35
  • Yep that's what I mean Jacob. Sorry if it wasn't clear enough Apr 19, 2021 at 8:50

Sorry, this is on me. My SEO plugin by default disable the archives date and redirect to homepage.

Leave it on here for the people maybe get stumbled by this problem.
