    there should be somekind of upgrade to that permalink update feature, because after changing URL settings, wordpress gives 500 server error.

    i resolved this manually like this:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    
    #Options +FollowSymLinks
    
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^download/(.*)$ wp-content/plugins/download-monitor/download.php?id=$1 [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

    Your .htaccess file should be

    # BEGIN WordPress

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^download/(.*)$ wp-content/plugins/download-monitor/download.php?id=$1 [L]

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

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

    # END WordPress

    I haved same prob when add #Options +FollowSymLinks to the .htaccess file

    I do have an issue with the custom download link as well. And somehow none of your solutions seem to work for me.

    What I was able to reproduce was @banesto's solution and it showed the custom download link but forwarded to a 404.

    I do have my WP install in a subfolder. Could this be part of the problem? Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Update: sorry my bad! Of course the subfolder changes things. @banesto's solution works perfectly ... just don't forget to add the name of the subfolder in the path on the redirect.

    This issue is really a pain in the butt. I did some changes to my blog settings and then I got the 500 Error again. But this time I didn't get it back to work that I can have a custom permalink.

    Anybody could explain in more details what exactly the steps are to go through when doing this? Thank you all!

    @karlotta - well I got it working once and just got my dev install back up. So I'll be playing with it and will let you know if I get it to work again.
