    Hello,

    a few months ago I set up wordpress temporarily on a different site and encountered this same problem.

    Now I have it again and need to figure out how to make it work.

    WP2.0.2 is installed, and I can't get pages to show up! I click on "about" and other pages I create, I can manage them using the dashboard, but you can't get them on the site! Just the not found message...

    the site is n e w b u r g h a d v o c a t e DOT n e t.

    any help greatly appreciated! thanks!

    Without changing anything, go to Options >> Permalinks and click the "Update Permalink Structure" button. Every once in a while, WP loses track of where things are--especially after editing or renaming a post or page.

    If that doesn't work, double-check all of your post, page, and category titles to see if they match the "post slug." The post slug is the "folder" name where that link goes to and should contain every word in your title separated by single dashes. I'm noticing that your "Civil liberties" category is actually linked to "uncategorized."

    Hope this helps. Someone had to help me with this problem a while back too.

    I too have just come across this problem. If what PTVGuy suggested doesnt work, check your .htaccess file, theres a section at the bottom of the permalinks page telling you what you should have in it for the wordpress mod. I tweaked that and mine works fine :)
