Permalink Issues - Unresolved (4 posts)

    Hi All,

    I read 7 other posts on here before resorting to my own post:

    I have a current PAGE url: http://www.mywebsite.com/service/service1

    I then manually edited the permalink in the page editor UI, clicked OK and "Update"

    There is a link to this page in the homepage navigation and when clicked, successfully takes you to the new URL:

    http://www.mywebsite.com/service/dog-walking

    But it results in a 404/Page not found.

    I have tried changing the permissions of the .htaccess to 777 from 644, but it made no difference.

    The .htaccess looks like this:

    AddType image/svg+xml svg
    AddType image/svg+xml svgz
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    Any help is highly appreciated!

    Thank you

    Hi

    Doesn't look like an issue with .htaccess. Sounds to me like you have not got the page/post hocked up to the menu correctly. In Appearances > Menus > (Navigation in Home Page) have you created a menu item that is linked to the post/page or is it a custom link (i.e. where you have simple typed in the url of that page)?

    Hi,

    The link is correct. No matter where I navigate to it from, the link and destination URL are as desired. Upon arrival at the desired URL, I get "page not found".

    However, I know the page exists because I just created it. Grrrr....

    Can you post a link to your site?
