[resolved] 404 for posts if category base is inside permalink structure (3 posts)

    I have a problem when using permalinks.
    In my case, I use
    /news/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%
    for the permalink structure and /news as category base. I need them to be identical for the Home-Page control plugin.

    Now everything works fine, only when I click to a single post (no matter whether the hpc plugin is activated or not), I get a 404 error. When I remove the /news from the structure, everything is fine again. So why isn't this working on my playground?

    I'm sure this has already been discussed, but I couldn't find anything. Could somebody give me a hint or a link on that? Thanks in advance.

    I've tested a bit more, there seems to be a bug in the rewrite conditions written by WP:

    I've included the following code into my site:
    <?php echo $_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"] . '<br />' . $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]; ?>
    with the "/news" stuff the output is

    /2005/12/07/hello-world
    year=2005&monthnum=12&day=07&name=hello-world&page=

    without this

    /news/2005/12/07/hello-world
    category_name=2005/12/07/hello-world

    If we can't resolve the errro, could somebody possibly tell me how to correct the rewrite conditions?

    btw, I'm using Apache 2.0.55, if that helps.

    The problem is solved; I changed the category base, so WP runs fine again.

    I misinterpreted the installation advisory for the Home-Page Control plugin: It does need its own base to be prepended to the permalink structure, but this doesn't affect the category base.

    Anyway, thanks for supporting. :-P
