  • Hi,

    Reset your desired permalink from wordpress admin area and add this code in htaccess of your blog/site:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    ErrorDocument 404 /index.php?error=404
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    After that have a check with blog posts and pages.

    I am having the same problem on, but I have pages not posts. I changed the .htaccess file as you suggested above, but I still only get 404s on my website. If I change back to permalinks it works fine.

    Thanks Shane. I think the problem was my .htaccess file. For one thing it was located in wp-admin directory. I moved it to the blog root and it seems to be working.

    I also had the syntax of the custom permalink entered wrong but fixing that did not fix the problem so I’m thinking it was the .htaccess.

    I don’t normally panic but this one was weird, totally hiding my pages for a while there.

    Thanks for the prompt response.
