  • I don’t know what happened, but I had to change the permalink structure back to default then back to my custom structure.

    ok now.

    Tim: I’m so glad I saw your post, and that you were gracious enough to follow it up with a solution. I don’t know how I’d have resolved my problem without seeing your posts.

    I installed wp-super-cache, having previously set my permalinks to “day and name”. After properly configuring the plugin and modifying the htaccess files, I found that attempting to visit any page on my site except the front page generated a 404 error.

    So I switched my permalink structure to default and then back to “day and name,” and the problem resolved.

    Could it be that wp-super-cache, once installed, will always generate 404s on any site with non-default permalinks, until this back and fourth permalinks reset trick is performed? If so, this seems like something that should be documented, if a bug fix can’t be made.

    I want to transfer my domain name which is with kompozer into a wordpress blog how do i do that



    Just had the same problem. I wouldn’t have guessed or tried this solution. Thanks for the post.

    Donncha: Please add this to the uninstall procedure or add it as a note. Uninstalling the plugin may cause 404 errors on all pages except the home page. Turning off custom permalinks resolves this issue.

    I’ve never seen this myself. I can only presume that the WordPress mod_rewrite rules were somehow removed when you uninstalled the plugin.

    Did you delete the .htaccess file or edit it when uninstalling?

    I had the same problem show up, with no reason that I could identify. Only the ‘Home’ page would show. All other pages began showing ‘404 errors’.

    After reading this post, I simply changed the permalink structure to default, and then back to “day and name” without even saving the change. Problem solved!

    Thanks for your documenting this. I have spent hours trying to figure out what happened to create this, to no avail. All is well now, except I wonder what created this error in the first place.

    archerguy – as I said above, you probably removed the WordPress mod_rewrite rules by accident when you uninstalled the plugin.
