Resolving Issues with Published Funnels Not Working on WordPress


At times, you may encounter issues where your published funnels in Gymini are not working correctly on WordPress, with redirections not functioning as expected. This guide will help you troubleshoot and resolve this issue, ensuring your funnels operate smoothly on WordPress.

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Identify the Issue

  • Symptom: The issue manifests as a redirection to the home page instead of the intended page when accessing a funnel.

  • Cause: The problem often arises due to third-party plugins that redirect 404 errors to the home page or affect SEO settings.

Step 2: Pinpoint the Problematic Plugin

  • Example Plugin: In the demonstration, a plugin that redirects 404 errors to the home page was identified as the cause.

  • Deactivation Test: To confirm, deactivate the suspected plugin and test the funnel link. If it works correctly, you've identified the problematic plugin.

Step 3: Implement a Temporary Solution

While a permanent solution is being developed, you can use the following hack to resolve the issue:

  • Copy the Slug: Copy the slug of your funnel.

  • Create a New Page: In WordPress, go to "Pages" and create a new page.

  • Title the Page: Paste the copied slug into the title field. While you can use any title, it is recommended to keep it the same for simplicity.

  • Select the Funnel: Choose the funnel as the title so that it automatically fills in the necessary field.

  • Publish: Publish the page to update the URL.

Step 4: Test the Solution

  • Copy the New URL: Copy the URL of the newly published page.

  • Test through Connector Plugin: Test the URL through the connector plugin to ensure it redirects to the correct page, not the home page.


By creating a new page with the funnel's slug as the title, you effectively mark the page as a known entity, preventing 404 redirects to the home page. This temporary solution allows you to bypass issues caused by certain plugins until a permanent solution is implemented.
