I installed this theme locally, and I ran into a few problems. When I click one of the WordPress admin links at the top of the page (Customize, Edit Page, etc.) I get “404/Not found”. The URL appears in the address bar, and I have to position the cursor in it and hit enter to open the link. Whether I’m logged in or not, when I type the site URL into the address bar, it opens on the 404 page, and I have to click one of the menu links to see the page. I have it set up for a static home page, by the way.
I’ve duplicated your comment from https://them.es/support/2015/06/08/them-es-starter-spa-ready-for-download/#comment-10 as a new post.
The SPA Starter Theme has been designed as a Single Page Application. I.e. All links (even the WordPress internal links) are routed via page.js
So you’ll have to open them in a new tab or hit enter again.
If your Front page displays a 404 error…
1. Go to Settings > Reading
2. Front page displays: A Static page
3. Select your Homepage
4. Save changes
This has been documented here: https://them.es/starter-spa/download
Please let me know if that works for you.
The wp-admin redirect now works in the latest release v1.0.4 – You can download a new customized theme or add the following line in index.php: https://github.com/them-es/themes-starter-spa/blob/b1d2a9e029cdc038a9a36f8f52e0e9e79733ac7c/index.php#L199-L206
Hi, thanks for responding. I downloaded the new version and installed it on a local server. Unfortunately, it’s still not working. Before, when I’d click on a link, I’d get a 404 in the content area of the theme. Now, it takes me to a separate page with a “not found” error message. Here’s what’s strange, though- I installed it online on a free host, and it worked fine. Maybe the problem lies with my local server installation.
Thanks again for taking the time.
Maybe “mod_rewrite” is not enabled on your local server. And/Or your Permalink settings are wrong.
Try to set the Permalink structure to “Day and name”.
