    This seems like a .htaccess issue, Check the file…

    Also you can goo to /blog/wp-admin/options-general.php scroll down and click save

    Do the same with /blog/wp-admin/options-permalink.php

    Thanks for the advice.

    I can’t find the .htaccess file, where should I be looking?

    I’ve done as you suggest with the other two files but without any change.

    Any other thoughts?

    Make sure that your FTP client is set to view invisible files.

    Thanks James,

    I’ve forced view of hidden files, where should I expect to find it, search of files from WordPress didn’t find it.

    I’m using basic Awardspace for hosting, could that be relevant?

    It should be in the same directory as the wp-load.php file.

    Sorry for the delay, I’ve been away for a few days.

    The wp-load-php file is in the sub directory “blog” withig the “thinkgov” directory. I cannot see the .htaccess file in that subdirectory.

    It seems odd that I can access http://www.thinkgov.co.uk/blog/wp-admin/ but can’t access http://www.thinkgov.co.uk/blog/

    Can you help?

    Is there an index.php file in the /blog/ directory?

    Yes there is an index.php file in the wp-admin folder

    No, is there one in the /blog/ directory?

    Sorry for my delay in replying I’ve been tied up (not literally)

    No there isn’t one in the blog directory, should there be?

    When you save your permalinks, WordPress should provide instructions for manually creating or editing your .htaccess file. If you don’t see any instructions, follow this guide:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks#Creating_and_editing_.28.htaccess.29

    Thanks for the instructions, I’ve created a .htaccess file with the content recommended in the blog directory. Unfortunately no change in the symptoms.

    Should I delete and re-install WordPress?

    Does it work when you use the Default permalink structure? You may need to remove the .htaccess file after saving.

    I’m using the default permalink structure (I’d decided to get the blog working before being too clever:-))and have now deleted the .htaccess file – no change.
