I changed the link style of permalinks from the default:
To something I feel is more friendly:
And saved the new settings...
Testing it out, I found that links now showed the new format, but when followed go to "Page Not Found".
Now, I was thinking perhaps WordPress couldn't write the changes to .htaccess
(I'm thinking mod_rewrite
) and so the the new links where not being translated by Apache.
So, I changed the file permission (just for testing) to 777 and tried again, resaving the new settings and navigating to the page.
Still "Page Not Found".
Any WordPress gurus out there know what I'm doing wrong? I'm sure it's obvious...
