Support » Fixing WordPress » 2.7 bug? / Problem with RSS Feed redirection using Permalink feature.

    Have been using WordPress since years ago.
    Just set up a test blog using the newly released 2.7.
    Having some issues with the permalink feature, wonder if it’s a bug or not.

    What I have done:

    1. Set up a test blog from scratch (reset MySQL database and delete all WordPress files) in a top-level sub-directory. (e.g.
    2. Changed the permalink settings to “/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/”. Using “cat” and “tag” as the ‘custom structures for your category and tag URLs’.
    3. Made an .htaccess writable by Apache and WordPress did successfully update the settings for mod_rewrite.

    My Problem:

    1. In WordPress 2.6.5, I would be able to access my feed using the address: “”. Nice and neat.
    2. But in WordPress 2.7, typing “” would always redirect me to “” and thus resulting in an Error 404.

    Is that something I did wrong? or an unintentional bug in 2.7?
    Thanks for any help. Cheers!
