2.0 not generating permalinks

  • I’ve just upgraded to 2.0 from 1.5.2 and it went really smoothly. The only bug I’ve foud so far is that WordPress is not generating the rewrite rules for permalinks, it just spits out
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php
    </IfModule>

    instead. This isn’t a problem for me as the old 1.5.2 rules are working fine, but I thought I should note it. This happens whether I am using a custom structure or one of the provided ones. I even tried a clean install at a different address (because I modify some of my core files slighty) and the same thing happened. It is not generating them in the text area or adding anything to the .htacces file (with permission 666).

  • This is intended behavior, and as you’ll notice, with that structure that 2.0 spits out, your permalinks still work.

    The permalinks only work with the year/month/date/ settings though. Using the post id/category etc generates a 404.

    The permalinks do NOT work unless you do like what Football said.

    WordPress handles permalink parsing now rather than mod_rewrite doing the parsing. It’s a lot better that way.

    I have the same problem as Football. I tried post id/post name and it won’t work.

    Mine wouldn’t work until I went to the options -> permalinks panel and hit the update permalink struction button. (I changed no settings though).

    Here’s my settings. Non of them works after installing WordPress 2.0. Can’t I use these on WordPress 2.0?

    How can I get them to work again?

    Just for fun, have you tried hitting “Update Permalink Structure”? Worth a try.

    And I’m using something similiar (/archives/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/) and it works fine:

    http://www.viper007bond.com/archives/2006/01/01/happy-new-year/

    my install is in a subdirectory on my site so i place a .htaccess file in the install dir/ than i had to chmod it 666 after that i just hit update permalink structure, and it worked for me.

    No permalinks are generated for me either, which means clicking on any of the titles of my blogp osts just refresh the main page with all my posts on it

    The permalink structure, themes or plugins dont seem to make a diffrence if i change, activate, or deactive them

    My .htaccess file is chmodded 666, there is nothing in it, pressing the “update permalink structure” button doesnt do anything.

    I cant see what the problem is :/

    my wordpress install is at: http://www.colin-uk.com/blog

    I’m having no problems with custom permalinks on a new install of WP 2.0. I used %postname%.htm and then clicked ‘update permalink structure’ (with having my .htaccess file rewriteable), and all is fine. You can see it in action at http://www.sealectric.com/tools/ (which for now is just a test blog where I’m playing around with WP 2.0)

    I’m having a problem with the new permalinks in 2.0.

    For my posts, categorys, pages etc it seems fine, but for any of the child ‘pages’ it can’t find them and I get my 404 error page.

    I’m using the standard link structure.

    You need to update the functions-post.php and classes.php files.

    I wrote a small article here.

    HI All,

    I am having problems. Only on a brand new version 2 install. So clearly it isn’t only an upgrade issue.

    I have tested various permalink permutations to get to the bottom of exactly where the problem lies, and and here are my findings:

    I uploaded a blank .htaccess file (ie open notepad and save as .htaccess – all files) and cmod it to 666 on the server – Then clicked on the options and clicked on Update Permalink Structure – This added the new .htaccess format

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

    Using this, the first five permutations below work (I have posted them here so that you can get it too work in some shape or form if you are in a hurry) – 4 and 5 DO NOT WORK.

    1/ Default

    http://www.domain.com/?p=123

    Works – (with or without .htaccess file)

    2/ Date and Name based

    http://www.domain.com/2006/01/04/sample-post/

    /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

    Works fine

    3/ Numeric

    http://www.domain.com/archives/123

    /archives/%post_id%

    Works fine

    4/ Custom

    /%post_id%

    Works fine

    5/ Custom

    /%postname%/

    Works fine

    6/ Custom – Here are where the problems are!!

    /index.php/directoryname/%post_id%/%postname%/

    Now, on a WP 1.5 install I have this working fine without the need for a .htaccess file.

    On WP 2 it doesn’t work at all with or without the .htaccess

    7/ Custom –

    /%post_id%/%postname%/

    Again, does not work. (Which is odd given that /%post_id% DOES work)

    Bottom line. Does anyone know what I need to change the .htaccess code above too in order to get 7/ to work?

    ie /%post_id%/%postname%/

    As that is the one I actually like to use (along with 6 -which also doesn’t work – if I am in a hurry – Lucky me!)

    Hi,

    Ok. I have tried the suggestion above of updating the functions-post.php and classes.php files.

    This does not change the above results.

    I have re-ran tests on the seven permutations above, and the results are identical even with those two files changed.

    ie 1 – 5 work fine. 6 and 7 do not work. ie

    6/ Custom – Here are where the problems are!!

    /index.php/directoryname/%post_id%/%postname%/

    Now, on a WP 1.5 install I have this working fine without the need for a .htaccess file.

    On WP 2 it doesn’t work at all with or without the .htaccess

    7/ Custom –

    /%post_id%/%postname%/

    Again, does not work.

    So, does anyone else have any ideas or code to get 6 and 7 working?

    Regards,

    Stuart
