Wordpress not updating cache

If you have posts that are now returning a 404 error page, don’t panic (yet) most of the time your posts are still there and you just need to update your permalink settings to fix the issue.This is very common with themes that use custom post types.So maybe you are switching from an older theme to a new one that does support featured images or maybe your prior theme was just very minimal and didn’t use them.We’ll you aren’t going to take hours to go through your hundreds of posts to set the featured image (or maybe you are) so there is a quick solution for this and it comes in the form of a plugin!

p=1) simply go to and change your setting to the “Post Name” option (or any of the others – just choose the one that best works for you).Locate the folder you have of the theme on your desktop and open it (if it is zipped, unzip and open it).Now when you open it you should see all your files in there, if not the theme is likely in a sub-directory.Once found zip it and upload via Word Press or upload the unzipped folder via FTP.You’ve got your theme installed and now you are uploading a sample file the theme developer was so nice to provide you with and yet again you get an error!
