I once created a script for a website of mine that looks at who (which author) saves the page. Based on this information, a script ensures that the page that this author creates is automatically saved under his main (parent) page.
However, after the publication of this page something strange happens with the permalink.
I am logged in as “Wesley” and if I save a page with the title “USB-Stick” the permalink should be as follows:
But when I save the page the permalink is like this:
When I try to go to this page I get a 404 because it doesnt exist.
The strange thing is that after 5/10 minutes the permalink is good and everything is fine.
But I get complains from everybody after publishing the page / post the link is not right and they get an 404.
Anybody has any idea how this happening and is there a way to solve this?
