Permalinks Issue (5 posts)

    Here I am again. I'm having an issue with broken permalinks. This is for a single-site activation of the plugin. The permalinks are set up with the post title:


    The link to the documents are giving me 404 errors:


    The documents are in the proper place on the server. The document names in the database appear correct vis-a-vis what I'm seeing on the server. Not quite sure what's up. Any ideas?

    Have you visited the permalink settings page?

    Ron, yea, I know that trick. Still made no difference. It's weird. I'm using another plugin in the meantime, but I'm not happy about it :) No worries.

    Ron, I've revisited this issue and still having troubles. Here is exactly what is happening, and I'm flummoxed for sure:
    1) Permalinks set at http://research.med.virginia.edu/clinicalresearch/sample-post/
    2) Create new document post and name it, then attach document.
    3) Check server, and document is indeed uploaded to its correct location.
    4) Document shows at bottom of editing page with correct name.
    5) PUBLISH post, and permalink is displayed correctly in the editing screen.
    6) Link returns a 404.

    Also important to note that the upload directory for this multi-network install is "blogs.dir." I am using this on another multiSITE install, with all the same themes and plugins, and it uses "uploads". The multiSITE install is having no trouble.

    I'm lost as to whether this is a multinetwork (networks+) issue, a wp-config issue, or a Cathy issue. Any insight?

    It shouldn't matter whether the original install was pre or post WP 3.5. The permalink to the document should be something like http://research.med.virginia.edu/document/sample-document/. Are you seeing something like that for the document permalink?
