I recently attempted updating my permalink structure from the default to custom (/%category%/%postname%/). After the change, every page then lost some graphics but the url name did change.
I called my host server to check for compatibility issues between the server and htaccess setup based upon the suggestions at http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks. Everything appears to be fine.
I then used only /%postname%/ in the permalink custom box. This change fixed most of the issues except for the entries that are "pages." Entries listed as posts seem to now work fine.
As an example,
http://travelwritelive.com/category/write/ Not working.
I am using the most current version of WordPress 2.9.1. and am updating any older plugins right now. If one of the plugins appears to be the culprit, I will delete this message. My server is Linux.
Sadly, I am not a tech, so all this is very confusing for me. I would be grateful for any suggestions.
Thank you in advance,
