Odor from Shower Drain

Installed a new shower pan and moved trap to fit new drain position and an intermittent sewer odor appeared. No odors from any other bathroom in house. Trap is holding water. No leaks. Trap is closer to vent pipe by about 6" from original position. Any ideas?

The only way that you could be getting odor from the shower drain area is if the water is leaking out of or being siphoned out of, the trap, or there is a leak in the drain line after the trap.
I suspect the latter, if you're not having any odor problems at any other trap area.
Good Luck!
