A few days ago I posted about permalinks, and I came back today to check again for responses by sadly none. I see other WP users having the same issue, but no solutions. How is it such a widespread issue has no resolution as of yet? I love WP, don't get me wrong but I'm perplexed as to why it's still lingering.
Basically, it seems as if the only current permalink option that works is the default. With .htaccess being writable, and the config updated and so forth several times - only the default works. Hell, even if I try to access /wp-admin/ after changing from the default permalink option in the config it 404's. The only remedy to getting back into the admin at that point is to remove .htaccess or remove the WP-added lines.
