Permalinks error when viewing a post (6 posts)

    I did some test posts, but have found trying to click the menu above causes all the links to be prefixed with:


    How many being the name of the post - any idea why it's doing this? It's done this to all the links - the strange thing clicking the mast header takes you back to the main page as it should.

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to update your permalinks structure for your htaccess file in the admin panel..

    Options >> Permalinks >> Update Permalink Structure

    (make sure your htaccess file is writable in your top level wordpress directory)

    I've got a similar problem..
    Been attempting the Permalink structure using the default given,

    and it's a no-go
    My .htaccess is read/write (chmod 666), and I've also clicked the update permalink button within WP just to make sure it's saved the changes.. but still nothing. It just gives me a 404 error, like it's not there. Am I missing something?

    It's very weird, but I just deleted the htaccess file, just to start clean, and updated the permalink structure. The link structure as I posted still appears on the links as I have posted.

    I used the default and it seemed to set it up for everything - np thre then. It works for everything else, but I did edit the links manually as a list rather than using wp_get_lists (or someting like that) as that spewed errors.

    But, going to the post is the only time this error occurs.

    Is there another command/permalink I am required to setup in order to get it working?

    I had a similar problem - 404's on clicking on the links in my blog after creating PermaLinks.

    In my case it turned out to be because my WordPress installation is not in the same folder as my blog so I had to create the .htaccess file in my blog folder, not my WordPress folder for the links to work.

    Hope this helps,
