    My site has an ampersand between the first page and the item I want to get to. Very Noob here. I just purchased 8 sites and this one is the only one I am having trouble with.

    See: http://www.****.com/&/tips-for-******/
    (I blanked the actual site (****) as I'm here for an answer and not traffic)

    I don't know where to start to look to fix this. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Change the ampersand to an ampersand followed by "amp;" (no quote, no spaces).

    Thank you for your help breakingball. I am going here to do this...is this correct. wp-options option_id permalink_structure
    I changed it and it is still the same. Am I in the wrong place?

    OK I tried this. I set it to just /%postname%/ and now the ampersand is gone, the catagory/item I want shows up as an "oops! This link appears to be broken" Closer...but still not fixed.

    My sql reads this. Line 152
    (33, 0, 'permalink_structure', '/&/%postname%/', 'yes'),
