[resolved] Permalink issue Error 404 (2 posts)

    Hello! I am sorry for a somewhat redundant post, I found similar issues in other posts, but for the most part couldnt understand the fixes offered as I am a WP/server seedling.
    I just created 2 new pages, and they both show error 404, while all others work(site is set up to /%postname%/ permalink). if I switch back to default permalinks, all pages show fine, but moving back to /%postname%/ makes the 2 new pages error 404 again. I read about WP needing write access to change the .htaccess file among other things in WP codex but being such a newb, this might as well be greek. my htaccess file looks like this, which seems right -

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

    any help is much appreciated, the more newb directed the better. Thanks! http://www.abishandmade.com

    Fixed it! It was a plugin issue. Check box under woocommerce>settings>pages "Prepend product permalinks with shop base page (shop) Note: The shop page has children - child pages will not work if you enable this option. " needed to be unchecked.

    Thanks to anyone who spent time looking in to it for me.
