One day the rewrite works flawlessly, the next it returns 404 errors. After repeated attempted to deactivate/activate, permalink/default permalinks, it still returns 404.
This should (but, does NOT) bring to download, returns 4040 page -- http://www.hrnerr.org/wp-content/plugins/download-monitor/download.php?id=AgendaHudsonRiverShoreline.pdf
This is the configured rewrite path to same file which returns 404 page -- http://www.hrnerr.org/documents/AgendaHudsonRiverShoreline.pdf
This is where the file ACTUALLY resides -- http://hrnerr.thewordpressdesigner.com/files/downloads/2012/08/AgendaHudsonRiverShoreline.pdf
This is the Rewrite rule in .htaccess file: Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteRule ^documents/([^/]+)$ http://www.hrnerr.org/wp-content/plugins/download-monitor/download.php?id=$1 [L]
So, it appears that it can't even find the plugin file (... download-monitor/download.php) to process the file?
Maybe WordPress Multiuser's rewrite rules are interfering with download-monitor's?
This is a great plugin. Maybe someone would be willing to resume support? Thanks for any help.
