    I'm testing 3.2RC on our Practice blog using twenty eleven theme. Can't get the comments to work for the posts. Posts are all set to allow comments.

    http://yorkshirevets.co.uk/wordpress32RC/index.php

    Comments work on the 'About Us' page.

    The live blog works fine: http://yorkshirevets.co.uk/wordpress/index.php

  2. That would be cause your permalinks are goobered somehow.

    If I click on the title for Dogs and Hot Cars

    I go to http://yorkshirevets.co.uk/wordpress32RC/2011/06/#respond

    That can't be right. What did you change in your theme?

    Hi Ipstenu.

    Thanks for the reply. I guessed permalinks had to be involved. The original wordpress blog all works fine and is set to default (?p=123).

    If I set the wordpress RC blog to default, I get "The requested URL /wordpress32RC/.php was not found on this server." and a 404 error message.

    I've set it as "/%year%/%monthnum%/" which is where the files reside, but I get the problem you see.

    I'm a wordpress and permalink novice and would appreciate any helpful advice. I'm sure it's really straightforward if I just knew. I've got both blogs running through the same remote server and have made sure to have a different "$table_prefix" in wp-config for each version of wordpress.

    I also have the wordpress RC blog set up locally using mysql and a local identical database and it works perfectly using the default permalink. I just can't think what I've done wrong on the remote server.

    I think I've sorted it adding /%postname%/at the end of /%year%/%monthnum%/, but I'm still not sure why the default permalink doesn't work. Any ideas?

  5. You HAVE to have postname in there, just as an FYI ;)

    "The requested URL /wordpress32RC/.php was not found on this server."

    I would think something's weird in your .htaccess OR you have to declare index.php specifically, which points back to Weird Server Things (tm).

    I'm still not sure why the default permalink doesn't work.

    The ?p=123 style permalinks don't work? Or what did you mean by "default"?

    The ?p=123 style permalinks don't work? But I've got things running perfectly now, it seems using "/%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/". I still have the old blog in place on our host server, but have removed links to it from our practice website.(http://www.yorkshirevets.co.uk). I use Hostroute.

    Do 2 sites with the same permalink structure on the same remote hosting server give problems - they don't seem to on my local machine.

    Just a mystery to me when the original WordPress 2 blog was very happy with ?p=123. I'm a total novice with a steep uphill learning curve. I've got a local blog working on my laptop using the default ?p=123 running through Windows 7 IIS7, PHP 5.3 and Mysql Server 5.1 through Workbench 5.2.

    WordPress 3.2RC seems to be behaving very well and I love the look of the twenty eleven theme for adding nice bold pictures related to our work.

    @gvet: So are you able to comment now? If so, please mark this thread as resolved.

  9. Comments work :) We should probably open a new post for the permalink oddity.

    No, generally not, but it could be an .htaccess collision. New topic please!
