Akita Read More permalinks broken on home page using shortcode

    Hi Jason,

    I’m trying to help a colleague who is using Akita for a client. She has inserted the following shortcode on the site:

    [post_list thumbs="small" post_content="default" tag="featured" numberposts="30" orderby="date" order="DESC" offset="0" link="true"]

    The content-list.php template is being used and contains the_permalink template tag for the a href for the read more link. However, the read more links link to the current page (the page on which the above shortcode is inserted) and not to the post in the post list.

    No matter which page the shortcode is inserted on, the read more links link to the page rather than the post.

    Thanks! The site is under an under construction plugin

    Angela

    I just de-activated all but the shortcodes plugin, and the problem is resolved. I’ll narrow down and report back!

    Okay. The conflict is with the plugin the client installed called “Fanciest Author Box.” So, I guess they can’t use that.

    It turns out the Fanciest Author Box query was confused by there being a post list on a page. It has Dashboard options to show the author box on pages and posts. But with a page that uses a Post List template or shortcode, the author box sort of choked breaking the PHP for the page. So, I edited the plugin to remove that function to check the display option since we were manually displaying the box anyway on the content.php file.

    Hope this helps anyone else using this plugin. I might add a function to the child theme’s functions to override the plugin’s function and avoid having to hack the plugin.
