Can't view older posts? - all archives just point to front page? (10 posts)

    Hello, Chris!

    Have you recently made any plugin changes relative to seo, or site maps, or paging, or anything that could have caused an upset in permalinks, or required a refresh of permalinks as an installation step?

    Perhaps refreshing, or just investigating your current permalink structure may shed some light. Just food for thought.

    I guess the easiest thing to try first, would be updating your permalinks to see if that has any positive effect.

    How? - You should get familiar with your won admin panel... at least to know what kind of buttons do you have there, don't you think?

    admin > Settings > Permalinks

    You may have some reading to do, my friend!! Although there are certainly other conditions that may causing your trouble, it's best to start learning now about permalinks and .htaccess (and related options, if you happen to be hosted on a windows server). Start here...

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks#Creating_and_editing_.28.htaccess.29

    ...and I recommend reading it all the way through, too. There's a lot of good info about situations that you may run into over time. It seems like a lot at first, but once it makes sense it stays with you. Good luck!
