[resolved] Downgraded after 3.1 install nightmare, but permalinks still not working... (4 posts)

    After installing 3.1 with way too many nightmares to deal with, I downgraded back to 3.03. But my permalinks STILL won't work - they send everything back to my homepage.

    Does anyone have any insights?

    I've spent hours upon hours today trying fixes that other people swear by, but nothing is working.


    Thank you so much.

    Run Settings > Permalinks to what you want in main site. Open up .htaccess file and compare it with htaccess file http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks#Creating_and_editing_.28.htaccess.29

    Thanks, mercime: that code for the htaccess file proved to be the thing that fixed everything :-)

    Here it is for everyone else benefit:

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

    # END WordPress
