Fixing Wordpress Error : All the pages redirecting to the index.php

Wordpress Bug

fix wordpress bug in permalinks
As the title suggests, this is another error/bug you may come across while working with Wordpress. I recently found this error in one of the Wordpress websites and I was confused as I had no idea how it happened. All I could remember was the site was working properly few days / weeks back.  So as usual I checked to see if any newly installed plugins have caused this bug. But I couldn't find a proper solution. So I had to use Google to find any clues as to what might have caused this and I found one question at Stackoverflow. Luckily I found  a good hint there, but nobody had given a proper answer.

Following on that hint, I could solve my problem and I thought I should keep it written in my blog so that someday, somebody may find this  article useful :)  Please read below to understand the issue and how to fix it quickly.

What is the Error?
Well, it is not a kind of error that you may find usually in your wordpress website. But if you got hit, you may go crazy since this error (rather I would call it a bug, or whatever) doesn't stop running your wordpress website or does no harm except it will ruin your user's experience. What it does is, all your pages will be redirected to your homepage. What a disaster, yeah? Your visitors who are coming only to read your content will find a buggy site and leave it quickly without knowing that it is a bug. Besides, who would care about a bug in someone else's website? They will go to another one because there are plenty of websites delivering the same kind of information.

How to Identify the Error?
Check your website in regular time periods to know that it is working properly. (Open few common links and make sure that they open the correct page.). I am not saying you may definitely get this bug in your wordpress website, but who knows? 

What is the reason?
As I mentioned above, I still have no idea to confirm what exactly caused this bug. But most probably, it might be due to a malfunctioning plugin or a bug in your template. I am confident that this bug is not coming bundled with the Wordpress original download package. That is why you find this bug in your website after few weeks or months after the installation.
