    Is it a 2.7.1 bug?

    Hi,

    Whenever you change the permalinks then it should send the 404 error message..so add this content in htaccess file of your blog/site after you change the permalinks:

    # BEGIN WordPress

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    ErrorDocument 404 /index.php?error=404
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    Did you find a solution to your problem? I'm experiencing this with the latest WP version as well.. 2.9.2 ... and I haven't been able to figure it out

    Check to make sure that you don't have any pages with the same slug in your "Trash" -- this will prevent you from being able to create a new page with the same slug.

    Emptying my trash out solved this problem for me. Thanks Kim!

    Hi Exey, I see your problem and I don't even think that is a problem for me. As I watch your video, you haven't click the "Update Page", you just copy the permalink that you have changed and saved,you did not updated the entire page.
    And ofcourse, the permalink doesn't change at all after you came back to edit it again because, you did not click the "Update Page" button. Hope I had helped you.

    Happy blogging.
