I can't make a page link I've made in a sidebar text widget work.
I've read the permalinks doc, changed the permissions on my .htaccess file, changed the permalink settings in the options panel, but I'm having zero success. I'm missing something, could someone wiser help?
-.htaccess permissions are 646
-permalink structure is set to date-and-name-based
-the page title is 'read an excerpt' and the slug is 'read-an-excerpt'
-the link in the widget is
Read an <a href="http://seandungan.com/unwelcomeness/?page_id=48">excerpt</a
-no matter what I set the permalink structure at, when I click 'view' for the page in question in the page management section it always comes up .../?page_id=48 in the address window.
-when I'm logged in, and test the site in a separate window, the link works. When I'm logged out, it doesn't.
-when the link is clicked, http://seandungan.com/unwelcomeness/read-an-excerpt/ (not /?page_id=48) comes up in the address window, then you get a 404.
Thanks for your help.
