Support » Fixing WordPress » custom permalink author = 404

  • Resolved debsjenkins


    I have an annoying problem with the author links – they don’t work unless I keep the permalink structure to the default.

    Ok, more specifically, I am on WP 2.8 (but it wasn’t working on 2.7 either), if I set the custom permalink structure to any of the example ones (the radio buttons) or what I was using: /%category%/%postname%/
    I get a 404 error when navigating to author pages.

    The page it tries to reach is of this structure
    http://mydomain/author/JoeGregory/ and it returns a 404 error.

    All other permalinks seem to be working fine.
    My .htaccess looks like this:

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

    # END WordPress

    I have searched the forums but I’m coming up blank, what do I need to do next to find the cause of the problem?

    Please help!
