I am trying to: View CPTs and their archive page on a client's Swedish site

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link (archive) or hidden link (single project)

I expected to see: Project archive page or single project

Instead, I got: 404 error.

The weird thing is, it works/worked sometimes, and sometimes the project page redirected to the single project URL listed above (but displaying 404 page), but now it seems to have settled on 404 every time for both.

I closed the ticket, because it seemed like it had corrected itself. It was working fine for a minute, but then it went back to 404s.

Thank you for contacting WPML support. I will do my best to help you solve this issue.

I would like to ask you to follow this steps:
- Create a full backup of the site.
- Update all outdated plugins and themes, specially WPML plugins. Outdated functionalities can cause conflicts in the code.
- Flush any cache memory that might exists.
- Go to Settings -> Permalinks -> Re-save the permalink structure.

Could you tell me result of the steps above?

Kind regards,

I have done as suggested – created a backup, updated all plugins, flushed all cache that I know of, and saved permalinks.

Behaviour is still the same: Sometimes it works as expected, but most of the time there's a 404 error – both for the project archive page and for single projects.

After a lot of poking around (troubleshooting page, settings etc.), the issue seems to have corrected itself (knock on wood).
