Perma Links Problem (3 posts)

    When I use the Perma Links option in the settings (i have installed a custom theme) the perma links will now go to pages with really good linkage, but it says... Not found...

    I created new pages after I installed perma links and still when clicking to the new pages, it says not found.

    I have had this trouble before, and as soon as I turn perma links back to default "i then get pages like this" http://www.nickthepromisering.com/?p=1" - but they don't have descriptive URLS...

    I was wondering if anyone else had this problem and how i fix it?

    Go to permalinks in settings... select custom, then add --> /%postname%

    then in you theme folder either modify or create the .htaccess folder within your theme root .. enter below

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    save.. then refresh your browser.. you shouldnt have any more 404 errors.

    I turned on permalinks, went to custom and added

    Then added the .htaccess to the root of my theme folder, and its not working.

    You said create .htaccess folder, but did you mean file? I created a file in the root of my theme folder called .htaccess

    What am I doing wrong?
