I've got a fairly odd permalink issue that's been affecting the root site of my multisite install only.
- WordPress 3.2.1
- Sub-directory install
- Default .htaccess for multisite
- Domain mapping plugin for sub-directory sites
- PHP Version 5.2.9
I first noticed an issue when I tried using the Jobs Manager plugin and couldn't get it to work unless my permalinks were set to the default.
I thought it was the plugin because pages and posts worked just fine regardless of peramalink setting...or so I thought.
We recently started adding some test blog entries and found that, while the posts do indeed link properly, clicking categories or archive pages render 404 Errors.
Example (forgive the incomplete-ness): http://pasha-boston.com/blog/, http://pasha-boston.com/blog/category/cure-lounge-news
Again, this is not true on any of the sub-sites; pages, posts, taxonomies, and archives all link properly.
I've talked to the hosting company and they wrote it off as a WordPress issue and said they most likely couldn't do anything. So, if anyone has any suggestions, it'd be much appreciated.
