permalinks bug? (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I have tried to find the solution all over the internet, without success.

    I have recently upgraded my WordPress installation to 2.3.3.

    Almost everything is working, except the tags permalink.

    http://www.site.com/tag/art - Gives a 404 error.
    http://www.site.com/?tag=art - Works perfectly.

    http://www.site.com/category/paint - Works perfectly.
    http://www.site.com/?category=paint - Works perfectly.

    If I set my WordPress to use the 'default' permalink structure, everything works properly.

    If I define a custom permalink structure (/%postname%.htm), the above error rears it ugly head.

    My .htaccess is defined as per the suggestion on the permalinks page:

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

    I do not know what I am missing, to get the /tag/art permalinks to work, but your suggestions are welcomed.

    I have considered the possibility that I may be running into a bug?

    Did you try to add an ending slash to the permalink?

    Are you using only /%postname%.htm as your permalink structure? Using only the postname will give you problems.
