    I tested using the .php and it redirects correctly. Perhaps there is interference with another plugin, or the htaccess file is not configured correctly.

    I also get the 404 error on that page. I think Permalink finder settings may be set to ignore small words like ‘a’ but then the 2 words ‘find’ and ‘speaker’ should still match.. So the only solution is to set up a redirect rule (Redirection plugin) that first takes all .php urls and strips the .php ending. Then the permalink finder should do it’s job.
    Be sure to check the Regex box (regular expression). First parameter is
    (.*).php
    and it should redirect to
    $1

    This post is about .htaccess, and if you are brave, the redirect might work, but you don’t want to mess with redirecting PHP files on the site, since WordPress and many other applications on websites are PHP based.

    I still think the error is there is conflict with another plugin that is doing things with 404’s, or else the current .htaccess file is broken.

    I can’t tell more without having access to the site, and I don’t recommend giving full admin access to some guy like me that you just met on the internet (although, you can call my wife and she’ll tell you that I’d rather be working on the computer than doing the important stuff around the house).

    Can someone tell me what the .htaccess file should have in it in order for pretty permalinks (or pagenames) to work? I have a site built on iThemes Builder (actually two sites) and changing permalinks to anything but the default results in 404 Errors. I tried reaching out to the folks at iThemes, but they have denied me access to support because apparently, my subscription ran out after 1 year.

    http://tropicmodel.com is the site I need to fix asap. Thanks in advance!!

    Try this:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

    Much depends on where you installed WordPress, and how you installed it. The code above is generic. Turn off caching before you make changes.
