Support » Fixing WordPress » Certain pages are broken

  • Hi,

    At this time, my header contains four sections: About, Contact, Archives, and Clips.

    Somehow, I got About and Contacts to work, but when I click on either Archives or Clips, I’m brought to a page-not-found error from my host (as opposed to WordPress).

    I’ve researched this issue, and it seems to be common, but I can’t figure how to implement the solution. From what I can tell, I need to change my permalinks and my .htaccess file, but, to put it simply, I’m lost.

    1. Via Options/Permalinks, I’m using the following syntax for permalinks:


    2. Here’s the content of my .htaccess file, which is in the same directory as my index.php file:

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

    3. And here’s what I think is the relevant section of my Header file (at least I think it’s relevant because I’ve been tinkering with it):

    <ul id="nav">
    		<li><a <?php if (is_page('about')) echo('class="current" '); ?>href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/about/">About</a></li>
    		<li><a <?php if (is_page('contact')) echo('class="current" '); ?>href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/contact/">Contact</a></li>
    		<li><a <?php if (is_archive() || is_page('archives')) echo('class="current" '); ?>href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/archives/">Archives</a></li>
    		<li><a <?php if (is_page('clips')) echo('class="current" '); ?>href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/clips/">Clips</a></li>
    		<li class="rss"><a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>"></a></li>

    4. Finally, I’ll note that in my Theme Editor, I have two Archives files.

    Can anyone help me sort out this mess? Many thanks!
