I've been following Andy Johnson's (Shapingthepage.com) tutorial on building a blog using EE and have been running into an incredibly frustrating issue where the permalink redirects to the homepage. Only thing I can see in the template debugging is this and can't really make sense of it:

(0.010170 / 7.26MB) Snippets (Values): FALSE|1|Bio Mechaniks|default_site|blog-test-entry-photo

The blog entry page I'm working with is here: http://biomechaniks.com/blog_entry/ When you click permalink for the non-video entry, you'll see it just sends you back to the home page. Per Andy Johnson's tutorial, I placed the following the index page for the template group:

{if segment_2 == ""}


  • You aren't being redirected to the homepage. The homepage is being loaded instead of the entry template. Are you working on a sub-directory of a currently online website? Why is your homepage /blog_entry? If this is really the homepage, /blog-test-entry-photo isn't the segment_2, but the segment_1.

  • Hi @RobsonSobral /blog_entry? isn't my home page, I mean the content that's loading is exactly the same content as my home page. Dec 31, 2013 at 21:13
  • But it's only loading one entry and not the paginated list from the previous view. So it could simply be that you're parameters for single entry view and multi-entry view are not quite right. For the single entry, you could try adding url_title="{last_segment}" for example, to see if that pulls the right entry into the page. Jan 1, 2014 at 0:30
  • Channel relationship issue. Problem solved. Since I'm new, I guess I can't 'answer' my own question? Thanks for the help :) Jan 1, 2014 at 0:47
