    Maybe your permalinks need resaving

    go into settings -> permalinks and hit the [save changes] button

    I had the same problem. I did what numeeja suggested and it worked. But now I have another problem. When i try to activate the get the image plugin i get the following error: Fatal error: Call to undefined function add_theme_support() in /home/mekeliki/public_html/wp-content/plugins/get-the-image/get-the-image.php on line 29

    Any ideas here?


    I’m in the same boat, but after a new install. Resaving the permalinks did nada.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    satish, your blog is not opening, not even the homepage. others, i guess, its a permalink/htaccess issue. however, you can always just backup your database and install wordpress fresh, would more likely solve the problem.

    Permalinks shouldn’t matter for the homepage of a site. They only matter for posts and pages.

    Both ssatish88 and southsidecanuck’s sites open the main page for me. Actually, ssatish88 is fine all through.

    southsidecanuck – Did you update your .htaccess file as the permalinks page suggests?

    Does your site work with permalinks turned off?

    If everything used to work properly then it’s possible a plugin overwrote something in the .htaccess file. try removing any recent plugins by deleting them from the plugin folder via FTP and delete all entries on your .htaccess and then re-save your permalinks.

    fix ur permalinks and set an .htaccess file

    The site does work with the default permalinks.

    I looked for an .htaccess file, but couldn’t find one (i had view hidden files turned on), so I created one with this snippet and made sure it was writable.

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    Honestly, I’m kinda lost with the .htaccess part.

    Thanks for the help!
