  • Resolved CMedia


    Hi I have just upgraded from 2.6 to 2.6.2 and I can not get my user defined permalinks to work.

    I am getting a 404 screen error.

    If I set the permalinks to deault I can accessmy pages BUT I need to restore my user defined Permalinks ASAP

    Any suggestions as to what the problem is and how to fix?

    I have a number of plug-ins including Recent cimments Similar comments by Rob Marsh, SJ.

  • Hi After a lot of stuffing around and mileading leadsI finly got it to work

    The blog was on a IE6 server which does not support .htaccessfiles. If you have an installation on an IE6 server remove the .htaccess file.

    The solution is very simple.

    Create a file name “wp-404-handler.php” andcopy it to teh same directory whereyou installed the wp-config.php or index.php file 8This should be your root directory

    Inside the wp-handeler.php copy the following php code

    $qs = $_SERVER[‘QUERY_STRING’];
    $_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’] = substr($qs, strpos($qs, ‘:80’)+3);

    You then need to set you site to look at this file when there is a 404 error

    THANKS TO Satchelmouth’s Web log

    and Google Search IE6 WordPress permalink
