Here's my site http://restorationgateway.org
I'm getting 404 errors when I try to access the category pages. I've been able to access the category pages by putting "?category_name=" in for the category slug under the permalinks page.
I don't know if it has something to do with my desire to eliminate the /blog slug - which somehow I was able to do.
I'm running 3.1.1 - but the problem started when I upgraded to 3.1.
I would like the slug to read /category/example_category/ or simply /example_category/
I upgraded to 3.1.1 when I saw that they had fixed the category issue and reverted back to the /category/ slug - but it didn't help.
Steps I have taken so far -
1. Recreated all permalinks (to default - then to custom)
2. Used the top-level categories plugin
3. Disabled all plugins
4. Deleted .htaccess file
5. Re-created .htaccess file
6. Set permalinks through network admin
If I remove the "?category_name=" slug - then the links simply show as /category/example_category/ - but when you click them they return a 404 page.
I've been to all of these and tried everything suggested there (that I am aware of) but to no avail.
Any ideas? Thanks!
