permalink structure / pages not linking (3 posts)

    Hello, I hope someone can help me, and I thank a zillion times in advance anyone who can! I have searched support thouroghly and found some similar problems, but nothing exact.

    My problem is that I have created Pages, and they appear fine in the sidebar, but when I click them, nothing happens. I have determined it is because it is not refering to the index.php page of my template... in other words, it points to

    http://www.my_site.com/wp/?page_id=26
    instead of
    http://www.my_site.com/wp/index.php?page_id=26

    Based on some answers in these support pages, I went to Options>Permalinks, and found where you can create a virtual site structure. I typed in /index.php/ Then I created a test page, and when you click that, you get the "no input file" error. So I know it's not that simple!

    My question is, does anyone know exactly what to put there to make a virtual site structure, so the Pages link properly? (and yes, the pages do appear fine if I type http://www.my_site.com/wp/index.php?page_id=26 directly into the address bar) I have put off asking support for as long as possible because I don't want to bother you guys, but I am at my wits end.

    (If someone mentions .htaccess in their answer, could you please be very specific? I can't see this file, and don't know what it should contain if I need to create one.) Thanks again for any help!

    I could not agree with you more about the .htaccess meantion. If someone says this has to be used to solve the problem, please write details instructions.

    Well, I did find the .htaccess file. On the ftp client I was using, it was hidden.

    However, apparently there's a good reason for that (!) because I tried to mess with the permissions and completely locked myself out of the wordpress directory on the site... can't do a thing. Even my server's tech support guys need 24 hours to fix whatever I did. (another reason perhaps for some kind of .htaccess tutorial) So, there's a setback, but I will keep you posted on progress because I am determined to fix the original problem! Hopefully, someone will post to my ever and eternal gratefulness! (now I'm going to plunge headlong into some other domains that I have installed wordpress on and maybe I can figure it out the page link problem from there!)
