I hope that someone can assist me.
When I first began using WordPress this past January, I encountered the following error message in Firefox:
"The page isn't redirecting properly . . . Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete."
After a bit of research, I discovered the "Disable Canonical URL Redirects" plug-in, which resolved this issue.
However, as a result of using this plug-in, I have been unable to use any other setting on the "Permalink Settings" page other than the "default" setting.
If I try to use one of the fancier file path options on that page, while the more stylized URL will appear in my web browser's location bar, I get a 404 error whenever I click on a link in the "Recent Posts" section in my blog's sidebar.
I tried using several of the Permalink Settings options, but each one gave me the same results; that is, the stylized URL in the location field, but a 404 error.
Is there any way around this problem?
In fact, will using the more stylized URL's enhance SEO, or do they just make things a bit easier visually for the end user?
Thanks to whoever may respond.
