[resolved] Another pages and permalinks question. (8 posts)

    I've read every post I could find about permalinks not working for pages, but no one seems to have the same problem (or a solution that fixes mine).

    Posts work fine with permalinks, but not pages. The pages work fine if you don't use permalinks. But if I do, it comes up as "Sorry, no posts matched your criteria."

    My .htaccess is set to 666, I reset the permalinks again and again, I create new pages, turn permalinks off and on, and still no help.

    Any ideas?

    Sorry to reply without an answer, but I've got one blog on my server that has a similar issue. Other WordPress blogs on the server don't have this issue, and I've triple checked the .htaccess file for such things like extra spaces at the end of the file... all with no success.

    I am guessing that this particular issue is unique to this particular blog, but I don't know where to start.

    This blog is scheduled to get updated to 1.5.1.3 early this week, and perhaps replacing all of the files might help...

    but I still suspect it's a legacy of a database glitch somewhere. I just don't know where to check.

    No worries. I updated to 1.5.1.3 hoping that would fix it, but it didn't.

    Your host might have recently blocked the SERVER_SOFTWARE variable, and this will cause WordPress's .htaccess generation to fail. See: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks#Fixing_Permalink_Problems

    Well I tried that, and now the pages come up with a 404 error.

    But the .htaccess generation is working, as I can see my pages listed in it.

    Check your .htaccess file to see the rules generated. You will get sufficient ideas from the file itself.

    Not sure what "ideas" I'd get from looking at the .htaccess file. Anyway, the problem seems to have been mysteriously fixed.

    I deleted the .htaccess file and regenerated it (for the millionth time) and now it works. Bizarre. Thanks for everyone's help anyway.

    With mine, I'm pretty sure it is going to be that the database of posts was originally imported from Movable Type.

    I've got a blank install I use for testing on the same server, and importing that database (both upgraded to the same version 1.5.1.3) kills my nice install.

    The problem WP works fine, with the exception of the permalinks.

    So... when I have the time, I'll manually import the tables until I find an error.

    Fun...
