[resolved] Changed Permalink-Site Crashed (4 posts)

    Good day,

    I thought I understood what I was doing, but I obviously didn't. I tried to change the permalink on an old blog post in the edit post screen so that it made more sense for that particular post. Instead, I apparently changed the URL for all posts. My main page (jmtbook.com) is still there, as are my other pages. My posts still appear on the combined "blog" page. But if I attempt to get to an individual blog post, all I get is a 404 error.

    Is there an easy way to get back to where I was before I made this blunder?

    Thanks in advance for saving the day, Ray

    Try these and see if they help:
    - reset your permalinks to some other setting
    - Deactivate plugins
    - Revert to Twenty Twelve theme (with plugins off)

    If the above steps help, you can know what actually causes the problem and then make corrections.
