I manage a rather large site, hosted on WPEngine. We have been having a problem where our permalinks stop working -- users see "not found" errors when following links -- to fix we go to settings > permalinks and hit save to rebuild them. Easy fix, but frustrates users before we notice it. This has been an issue for a while but has been getting worse and worse lately, to the point that it's been happening at least once a week, sometimes more.
WPEngine support has not been helpful (understandable I guess, since this is intermittent/unpredictable and therefore very hard to test)
I'm wondering if others have had this issue before, and what plugins/conditions contributed to the problem?
My top three suspects are:
- The Events Calendar Pro (lots of recurring events)
- CleanTalk Anti-spam
(but client reluctant to deactivate any as an experiment because they kind of need all of these)
What experience have you had with this issue and what fixed it? What would you suggest looking into to try and solve this?
