Custom permalinks failure (6 posts)

    My custom permalinks failed, apparently after upgrading to a recent Word Press version. Resetting to default permalinks re-established the connections, but how can I repair the custom links? I would like to resume using custom permalinks, not just default ones. My site is http://www.eternalviewpoint.com.

    delete the wordpress .htaccess
    re-save your custom permalinks
    admin - settings - permalinks

    if using ftp you will need to check to "show hidden files"

    if looking in your host's file manager, it should be visible in the root folder (public_html or htdocs - whatever host uses)

    i found this thread by searching, i'm having same problem as TO. i have deleted the .htaccess file through my godaddy htp and resaved the custom links. still getting 404 not found. i was doing well in the search engines, and now i am not there.

    this happened after i upgraded to 3.0.
