404 error message (7 posts)

    Every time I try to navigate to a different page on my site I get a 404 error. Why is this?

  2. Likely it's your permalinks and you don't have mod_rewrite enabled.

    If you reset your permalinks to the default http://www.example.com/?p=123 do your links work?

    Thanks Jan. Unfortunately I am completely technically inept!

    So when I see things like resetting permalinks I break out in a cold sweat.

  4. Nah, permalinks are easy. ;)

    Try this: visit your WordPress dashboard

    http://your-wordpress-url-here/wp-admin/options-permalink.php

    Don't change anything just click on the button Save Changes.

    What that will do is re-save your .htaccess file that handles your permalinks. After you save that see if you still get those 404 errors.

    Thanks Jan. I tried that but it's still saying "page not found"

  6. Can you provide a link? Also try switching the permalinks to the default ?p=123 and save that. You can save it back later.
