    My site has been running for six month. At the first time I didin't know much about permalink! All were default. Few days ago I tried to change permalink structure but not succeed :(. I went to "Permalinks setting" and choose new structure...press update...it said OK! Opened my blog in new tab, moved the mouse point on several link...it seemed perfect. But when I clicked on it, it said broken link :(( Please somebody help me:((

    I'm having the same issue! I tried to change the home page Permalinks to http://www.margiepeng.com/home and now the link won't work. before it was something weird "www.margiepeng.com/page_id4"

    Now the link doesn't work. How do I change the name, but make it still work?

    You should get a message if your .htaccess file (file that make permalinks work) is not writable. Alternatively, you can just create a file over there with the rules

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress

    Crisis solution: pick the default option (first) - to get it to work in the meantime.
