    I have a WP blog at http://www.domain.com and I create a directory http://www.domain.com/stuey .

    when i put http://www.domain.com/stuey/ in my browser I get the message "Error 404 not found"

    How can I get around this?

    Regards

    Stuey

    I had a similar problem, while using a particular theme. When I changed the theme, the problem stopped.

    Try this and get back to me if it works.

    I am presently in the chatroom at http://www.livinusnosike.com so we could talk about it.

    Cheers

    Um. I'm not sure I understand your question. If your blog is in your root directory, then nothing is in the subdirectory so you should get a 404 messages when you access it.

    nmallory,

    Let me clarify this for you. I have a blog in my >root directory and I have added a sub direectory called /bananas

    I want to access images or php files that I have uploaded to the bananas directory but when I type http://www.domain.com/bananas/ I get a 404 error. I have even uploaded an index.php file in there to see if it was only directory browsing that was the problem but I still get a 404.

    Now, this second I've just tried http://www.domain.com/bananas/index.php and still get 404 even though I checked everything with SmartFTP.

    Weird, must be .htaccess issue.

    Any ideas?

    Regards

    Stuey

    Does sound like .htaccess settings.

    Take a look at: http://www.javascriptkit.com/howto/htaccess.shtml , and there's a short cheat-sheet at http://thejackol.com/htaccess-cheatsheet ...

    I am having this problem too. I tried moving wordpress into its own subdirectory and then removing the wordpress stuff from the root's .htaccess, but I'm still having the same problem acessing subdirectories.
