Support » Fixing WordPress » All permalinks bring to a 404

  • Hi guys, been breaking my head over this. Can’t figure it out.

    My site is Utah Auto Scene.
    I wanted to implement the /%postname%/ permalink structure. I know it’s not recommended by WordPress but it works very well on another blog I am currently running.

    Anyway, so I got it to work, worked fine. Then I needed to create a page. The address is

    Except now the problem is that anytime I create a page, it gives me a 404 error. Posts work fine, and even more mind boggling is that when I click on the standard ‘About’ page, it works fine, not matter what permalinks structure I use.

    When I change to the default structure of everything works fine. When I try anything at all different like %postname% or /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/ or /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/ or even /archives/%post_id%, it all goes to hell, while the original ‘about’ page works no matter what.

    Could you help me out here? I would love to be able to simply use /%postname%/. If this is not possible, and I don’t see why not being that it works fine elsewhere, I could use something else other than the default settings.

    I have tried rewriting .htaccess and read so much about this so far that my head is about to explode and yet nothing helps. seems to have a lot of info but so far nothing has helped.

    Please try to help.

  • I like using the “Get Permalink” v0.4 plugin for permalinks. it’s simple and easy to use.

    Searched for it, couldn’t find it. Do u have a link?

    And also, if it worked earlier today and now it doesn’t, what’s up with that? Turns out there are lots of people experiencing the same issue. And by the way the same structure works on another site. Still works fine, checked a few minutes ago.

    Any ideas?

    Get Permalink WordPress plugin

    here is the link for the plugin i like to use, but it depends on what you want it for.

    could also be an issue with the plugin version and wordpress version if others are having the problem. see how others have been able to resolve the issue

    I got it taken care, thank you for trying to help.
    What I did was simply reinstall WP.
    I think what may have caused the problem was improperly set file and folder permissions. Which by the way I am still trying to figure out.
    I’ve read so much and all are different, so I am a little concerned about changing them this time around.
    I use FileZilla.
