Support » Fixing WordPress » HELP: Rewrite rules won´t work after WP generation

  • I´ve read all about “About permalinks” in Codex. I tried to request some help here in the forums, in both threads (see them in

    I´ve noticed that my WordPress won´t generate a working permalink structure in .htaccess. I´m using a structure like


    After a deep inspection in .htaccess I´ve noticed that WP does not generate rules for all rewriting posibilities

    /archivos/%year% Works fine. Example:

    /archivos/%year%/%monthnum%/ Works fine. Example:

    /archivos/%year%/%monthnum%/%day% Works fine. Example

    /archivos/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/ WON´T WORK. Example:

    At this point, I´ve checked Rewrite rules. You can see them in PasteBin

    I suspect that WP does only generate /archivos/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/ structure, as %postname% is not listed in my WP .htaccess file.

    I used to have ([_0-9a-z-]+) syntax in my former WP 1.2 rules, and I can´t see this alphanumeric with _ and – post title rule in the file Worpress generates.

    Could someone provide me with a working WP 1.5 .htaccess rules for /archivos/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/ structure?

    Thanks in advance

  • SOLUTION to this issue:

    Via #wordpress IRC at freenode, skippy and Firas helped me finding a solution.

    This plugin, called Sanitize MT style, was intented to sanitize post titles, giveing them MT style (_ instead of – in post title breaks)

    The plugin is available at

    Once deactivated, site is running perfectly.
