Permalink - Custom Structure (12 posts)

    Hi

    I am trying to custom my permalinks structure, however, when I do this for some reason my post pages get a 404 error, apparently this is because somehow I doubled up my domain url in my permalinks and set every post link to exactly the same broken url.

    Is there anyway that I can custom my permalinks and have access to the blog page.

    Please have a look Spanish http://www.spanish-aid.co.uk

    Thanks a lot

    What custom string do you want to use?

    Hi,

    Add this code in htaccess and have a check:

    # BEGIN WordPress

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    ErrorDocument 404 /index.php?error=404
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    First, turn on the regular permalinks and get that to work before trying to use a custom string.

    Sorry guys but it did not work. I did what Shane G suggested. and I am having the same problem with my post. The rest of the pages work perfectly but for some reason, when I click on one of my post the url duplicate itself http://www.spanish-aid.co.uk/http:/www.spanish-aid.co.uk/example#respond and I get the 404 error. I am going to leave it as it is so you can have a better look before I reset the permalinks to the default settings

    Thanks again for your help

    See, every single post permalink you have is wrong and set to this:
    http://www.spanish-aid.co.uk/http:/www.spanish-aid.co.uk/example

    What in the heck is in your custom permalink string? Because you obviously have set it incorrectly or something.

    Check your Settings->General page. Do you perhaps have something there with only one slash instead of two?

    Does your custom permalinks string contain that whole http thing? It shouldn't.

    WordPress address (URL) http://www.spanish-aid.co.uk
    Blog address (URL) http://www.spanish-aid.co.uk

    My custom permalinks are like this.

    Custom Structure /http:/www.spanish-aid.co.uk/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

    Do you thing I have to amend somthing?

    Thanks again for your help

    Otto man

    I just got it, I know what it was, I was putting the whole url again on my Custom Structure. I have deleted /http:/www.spanish-aid.co.uk and know is perfect. Sorry about this I thought I had to put the whole url when setting custom permalinks

    Thanks

    There's your problem.

    Change your custom structure to this:
    /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

    Just that. Not all the stuff in front of it.
