Hello everyone. I'm hoping someone can help me out here because I'm stumped on a problem with permalinks on a blog I'm working on now. Here is what is happening:
1)I do have mod_rewrite on my server, but I don't know what version of apache I am running. I'm waiting on an email about that from my host.
2)I have 2 other blogs set up on the same server with no permalink problems at all.
3)I have tried to create the .htaccess manually, and by having it writable. Both to no avail.
4)I want to use the permalink structure /%category%/%postname%/ .When I hover over the links, the status bar shows the links correctly, but when I click them, I get a 404 error. However, even though the links look like correct permalinks, I can still get to the page I want if I type in manually the ugly link with ?p=1, for example.
5)I have tried with a variety of permalink structures and have the same issue, so I don't know if it's an issue with Apache and the /%category%/ . I have also tried the plugin which is supposed to rectify that bug, with no success.
6)I have tried deleting and re-doing the .htaccess file, as well as deleting the entire install and db and starting fresh with no success either.
I hope I have provided enough info for someone to point me in the right direction. As this is an adult oriented blog, not suitable for general audiences, I'll refrain from posting the URL. Thanks in advance for any advice that my help me get this straightened out.
