I don’t understand what the hell I am doing wrong here. This is the fourth website of mine this has happened to, the other times I had to pay somebody to fix it for me but now I just want to learn what I’m doing wrong and how to fix it myself.
The problem: When I click on a post title on my homepage (blog is installed directly on the home site), instead of displaying only that single post, it merely refreshed the page and displays all posts. So, should somebody read one of my posts and want to link to it, the direct link would bring up all posts instead of that single one.
Another problem this creates is when you click on “comments” to read/write a comment, it does the same thing: refreshes the homepage rather than just bringing you to the single post.
Other things to note: In the past, I suspected this happened when I changed the permalink structure. Often I would create a blog and then forget at first to use the “pretty urls” so then I would go back in and change it, soon after I noticed the problem.
However, this is a brand new blog. I changed the permalink structure before I ever posted on it.
Another problem I had with other blogs was that the RSS feed also somehow got messed up along with the permalinks. Same deal this time.
I had posted for help here months ago when I first began having these issues only to get a reply about checking my htaccess file. Okay. But WHAT am I looking for specifically?
I’m not familiar with modifying such things, I don’t know what to look for, but I know that if somebody could give me more of an idea what is normal, what isn’t normal for htaccess, and hopefully a step-by-step resolution…I am confident that I could fix it myself. I just need to know WHY this is happening?!
So frustrated! Please help!
