    Hi Guys,

    I had been with WP for some time, here is a problem that does not seem to resolve.

    URL friendliness :D, I install WP from Godaddy, I love WP and every feature of it. In fact most of friends now use WP on their sites. I helped everyone setit up and work with it, but my own websites [Adrenalinerider.com] & few others wont work the way other guys use.

    I kept wondering why no answers, same problem with SMF as well, when i use pretty URL :(

    This is not first installation of WP, i had re-installed several times thinking that there might be some bug but no, it just does not seem to work.

    Permalink is almost useless for me as of now, any solutions for this guys ?

    Or does it have to do with Godaddy users ? coz seems like some of us have similar problems on same services from godaddy

    Please suggest some solution here,

    Thanks in advance,
    Faiyaz Sultan

    I've been using GoDaddy for over 10 years, and for over 2 with WordPress.

    Changing the permalinks from the default to any other custom version DOES work - you really just have to wait a few minutes for it to all resolve on the server.

    Trust me - set them to your "pretty" version and load up your page. Click around, get your "404" errors, and then go grab something to eat.

    When you come back, it should all be resolved.

    If for some reason it takes more than half an hour (which it's never taken for me - usually less than 10 minutes), there may be other issues with your hosting setup, or your installation. But for me, time and time again, it's just a matter of patience. :)

    Oh my goodness -- thanks for this! It worked perfectly as a fix to my own problem!

    I had no idea it was a GoDaddy delay!
