Support » Fixing WordPress » Url redirect

  • I am new to wordpress and sites in general.

    Until recently we had “ugly” permalinks. In order for the new coupon database to work we had to make “pretty” permalinks. I added the index.php to the front of it to make it work. Seemed like the easy thing to do at the time.

    Now my homepage ( works but at the bottom when you click to go to page 2 it sends to a 404 error page. If I insert “/index.php/” before the /page/2/ it takes me to the correct page.

    How can I make it insert that automatically? All other pages work fine…just when I try to navigate to more posts from the main page.

    Please keep in mind that I know NOTHING about websites so any explanation needs to be very detailed!

    Thanks in advance!

  • Discuss with your web host how they support mode_rewrite. Some do not, some do in some ways, most good hosts fully support the mode_rewrite module required for pretty permalinks to function properly.

    Basically, what mod_rewrite does is change the URL from to the slug for each post, category, or tag, etc., and it becomes a URL that SEO can decipher better.
