    1- can you disable all your plugins and check if you're still experiencing the problem?
    2- Are you getting this problem when you are hitting the category url's, such as http://www.yourwebsite.com/news/ where news is your category slug?
    3- Check your permalinks to confirm that they are still correct and valid (hit save to force a write to the database just in case).

    Hi Patv!

    1 - Yes I disabled all of my plugins and it's still occurring
    2 - Yes, it's still happening when I hit the category url.
    3- I've checked my permalinks. I've even deleted and recreated my categories and it still will not work.

    Here's an example: http://loveandhiphopatlanta.net/love-and-hip-hip-atlanta-videos/

    From this post url: http://loveandhiphopatlanta.net/rasheeda-doesnt-care-if-you-dont-like-her-braids/

    I can see that the post's permalink isn't taking into account the category (unless this post has no category?). Your permalink structure should be /%category%/%postname%/. It seems that your structure is simply /%postname%/

    Can you confirm what the permalink structure is in your WordPress setup?

    I'm using the postname permalink structure. When I change it to /%category%/%postname%/ my categories work, but then none of the links to my post will work.

    *sigh*

    Well you'll need to use /%category%/%postname%/ to get the category pages working.

    As for the post links not working, I'll admit I've never seen that before. Can you provide me with the following information:

    -the code used to retrieve the post listings and display their url (are you using the_permalink).
    -The URL generated that includes the category but that isn't hitting the post correctly.

    Any luck fixing this? I'm having the same problem as of this morning.
