    Hi Eric

    I know you asked that we not post to [resolved] issues but you didn't post the resolution, so I will repost - I upgraded from 2.3.3 to 2.5.5 and now the Open and Download links result in a 404. The PDFs are stored in the media directory and the full URL is in the Publication link box.

    Sample link to a publication:
    http://www.stmichaelandallangels.ca/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Advent_4C.pdf

    The first link on this page should point to the document above.
    http://www.stmichaelandallangels.ca/sermons/

    Instead I get a 404 on all links now. Help!

    I updated the other thread with the resolution:

    When you upgrade the plugin rather than do a fresh install, its not flushing your permalinks. To do this manually, you need to:

    1. Log in to your site.
    2. Navigate to Setting ยป Permalinks

    That's it. Just viewing the permalinks page will flush your settings and fix the 404.

    If not, please start a new discussion topic because that means you're facing a different issue. This is the same process we used to resolve the problem above.
