[resolved] Added About Us page, but cannot view it in WP admin or on the site (4 posts)

    Hi all,

    I uploaded a new template (Responsive) which took the place of another template I had someone on FIVVER do for me. I added an about Us page, but it does not show up when I select view in Admin nor when I view the site. I get the following when I try to view it:

    "Not Found

    The requested URL /blog/about-us/ was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

    Here is the web address:


    However, If I select "Default" under common settings instead of "Post Name", I can view the page and the changes show up. Now if I go back and select "post Name" again, I get a notice in yellow at the top of the page that says "You should update your .htaccess now". Here is my current .htaccess rules:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /blog/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /blog/index.php [L]

    Can anyone Please tell me what .htaccess rules I should be using and how I would go about changing them? I am new to WordPress and it has been kicking my butt most of the day trying to figure this out.

    That .htaccess file looks OK. Check with your hosts that mod_rewrite is running on your server.

    Thanks for responding. I will ask my provider.

    I asked my provider and here was their response:

    Hi Don,
    Yep, mod_rewrite is running on the server. Please make sure that you follow the instructions for the 5-min install, and include an .htaccess file in your WP folder.

    Do you know what the 5-min install is referring to?
