Can't create pages in 2.5 (4 posts)

    Okay after several hours of searching the forums and not finding an answer. Here is my problem.

    1. I did not have an .htaccess file in the download for wordpress 2.5 when I downloaded it.

    2. When I go to create a page it shows up under my manage pages tab and I can edit it but when I click on the link to that page from the main blog page I get a 404 error.

    3. I did create a default .htaccess file and uploaded it to my main folder, however its still not working.

    I don't know what I am doing wrong at this point but its seriously driving me nuts to the point that I'm about ready to just delete wordpress from my server and go back to blogger.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I could really use some help here. I've tried everything other threads have suggested and no help. Can someone please help me?

    and why did you create an .htaccess? you only need an .htaccess if you intend on using pretty permalinks.

    since you neglected to provide a URL to the blog so that we can see for ourselves...

    whats the url to the page that is resulting a 404? and If you dont want to provide the full URL, then you atlease need to share what the bits are after the http://www.your.domain.com/

    In other words, are you using pretty permalinks or not?

    Thank you for responding. But I think I'm just going to go back to what I had before. I knew what I was doing and didn't have to mess with the permalinks or anything else. Thank you anyway. I just don't have the time to deal with all this right now.
