I'm having some issues getting permalinks working correctly. The site is set up so the front page displays a static page, currently the "Home" page (home.php, template name "home"). I have numerous other pages set up as well as a blog (blog.php, template name "blog"). As long as I have my permalinks set to "default" (ugly) everything works fine. As soon as I give them ANY kind of custom structure I get nothing but 404s.
I've read everything about Making Your Blog Appear in a Non-Root Folder as well as everything here on permalinks. I've done some searching around as well but thus far am not coming up with anything helpful.
I'm running WordPress 2.8.5, which I manually upgraded to from an old 2.0.4 installation. Not sure if that would cause issues or not but it's probably good to note. Currently I'm running all this locally but I should have a dev site set up soon, when I do I'll provide a link.
This is my first go at developing a WordPress site so if I'm leaving out some important details I apologize, just let me know if anyone needs any more info on my situation or has some thoughts/ideas for solutions. Thanks all!
