Support » Fixing WordPress » htaccess problem

  • Hi,
    I’m trying to solve a problem with WordPress here. I’ve added the htaccess code that WordPress provided for permalinks and they are working fine.
    However, when I log in, it seems to redirect me back to the main ndex page with a note saying “Sorry, no posts matched your criteria”. If I go to /wp-admin/ I get that message, but it shows the admin menu if I go to /wp-admin/index.php. Funnily enough if I go to /images/ I get the “Sorry, no posts matched your criteria” message as well.
    When I remove the .htaccess file, those problems go away. Is there a way to get around this problem?

    Tried clearing your cookies for your site ?

    Sorry should have mentioned that I’ve cleared cookies.

    Your permalink structure is too vague. It’s basically saying “everything after / is a permalink” so when you enter something that doesn’t directly match a file it says “I’m going to look for a post with a post slug of the URL.” Try making your permalink structure something more specific, like either of the suggested defaults, or at the very least prefix it like:
    archives/%post_name%

    Ahh brilliant – thank you so much!
