Permalinks don't work - require index.php (2 posts)

    WordPress' default options for custom permalinks aren't working (selecting one returns a 404 error when following a link from the home page).

    However, if we do a custom path that includes "/index.php" then it works:
    /index.php/%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/

    Any thoughts? .htaccess issue? Our tech guys aren't being too helpful. Thanks!

    Those are called "almost pretty" permalinks -- see more at the Permalinks page in the Codex.

    Have you confirmed that your host has mod_rewrite and AllowOverride properly on and enabled?
