Ok, so exchange with a few add-ons such as the invoices add-on appears to work great with the Twenty Fourteen theme bundled with WP. However, I have a custom theme installed, and exchange works mostly, except when viewing invoices using the invoices add-on. I know it is the theme having a conflict as it is a fresh WP install with no other plugins installed. The problem is that I cannot find out why all of exchange works except the invoices add-on with the custom theme. Are invoices using different URL techniques than anything else in the exchange plugin?

For example, visit:


The product will show up. But an invoice product type will not show up, instead it redirects to the store page:


Here are my thoughts...

Somehow my theme is having a problem with the invoice being a hidden product type (not visible in the store) and therefore redirecting the 404 to the store page as exchange is programmed to do. Or there is an issue with the added URL parameters "?client=139485436207955323c9da136b3" at the end of the product link. Any initial thoughts or ideas?

I am not sold on the URL parameters being an issue yet as I enabled digital downloads addon and added a product download link and that worked just fine which also has ?it-exchange-download=1394895784554553246ba887624. I think there may be an issue with the theme finding the invoice as a hidden product type and then when not found, redirecting to the store page. Something about the invoices add-on is programmed to generate the links differently than the rest of exchange core and other add-ons like digital downloads.

Thanks for your help!

Nevermind, after messing with it for a few hours, I figured out the problem. The theme I am using has a custom post type for "client" to uplaod and display clients and their logos you have worked with on the frontend. That post type was conflicting with the client url parameter used for viewing invoices. For anyone else with a custom theme, check to see that you do not have a plugin or post type in your theme that already has a client post type. If you do, the easy thing to do is change the name for the post type to something else :)

Thanks, all resolved!
