    I was having trouble getting the RSS feed from my site to work so I tried editing the permalink structure based on the tags WordPress suggested...initially I thought that my problem was solved, the feed for posts seemed to work just fine, yet I discovered that after making the change to get the feed to posts working, I had broken the links to the monthly archives - what gives?? I'm miffed! Help! Check it out at http://consideringeducation.net - thanks in advance for any help.

    You may want to clean out your .htaccess of your WordPress-related rewrites and then reset your permalink structure.

    Once you get your regular permalinks functioning properly again, we can look over the RSS problem. I doubt it was a permalink issue.

    Just exactly how do I, "...clean out the .htaccess of the WordPress-related rewrites.."? This process is entirely new to me and I will probably need some step by step. Thanks for the tip!

    Any ideas on how to "...clean out the .htaccess of the WordPress-related rewrites.." Does this affect the structure of the archived posts?

    "Does this affect the structure of the archived posts?"

    Only briefly, until you reset the structure.

    The easiest way to "clean" it out is to copy the contents of your current .htaccess to a local file (i.e. save it to your computer), make sure the one used by your blog is then empty, then go under Options > Permalinks to reset them.

    By the way, my suggestion to back up your .htaccess is just a bit of protection in case you have any custom rules in use that would need to be returned later.
