I'm very new to wordpress, but have been diligently playing with it to breaking point, apparently! :) I'm using WP 220.127.116.11, Apache version 1.3.33, Kernel version 2.4.30-grsec, etc. .htaccess is at permission 666. I've imported entries from textpattern (which is just an appalling system for bloggers) and had problems with the dates published being incorrect, but of course that was easily modified.
My current problem is that since I imported from textpattern, when I click on a permalink it simply displays what is essentially the index page, but with the permalink address in the address bar - even when clicking on the permalink for entries that weren't imported. I've tried updating the permalinks, but this hasn't helped.
If anyone can shed any light on how I can make permalinks behave properly again, I would be eternally grateful! For reference the site I'm talking about is at http://www.ielaborate.info if that helps at all.
