  • When I try to change my permalink settings I get a 404 error…

    Is there anyway to correct this issue? I thought I simply changed the options and everything would integrate…

    my blog is , However, I returned the permalinks settings to default because that is the only way the links work..

    Any help will be appreciated…

    it should work automatically .
    Can you access the page (directly) after changing the permalinks ?
    Or do you get 404 when accessing from OUTSIDE ?
    What format did you changed the permalinks to ?
    Do you have absolute path links WITHIN your site ?

    I’ve read a bit more about the permalinks and if I understand correctly when you change the permalinks it will mess up the old links or posts. Is this true?

    Regardless, even the new posts I make after the permalink change still do not work (404 error).

    I’m not sure what you mean by abosulute path links. Sorry I’m still a bit new at this..

    After I make the permalink change my categories or post links will not work. It only works in default.

    Additional insight will be appreciated!


    absolute path links are when you you copy and paste a URL from your OLD permalink structure and link one of your posts with an absolute path.
    e.g. :
