WordPress Permalink Question


I changed the link style of permalinks from the default:

http://MySite.com/?p=123

To something I feel is more friendly:

http://MySite.com/2011/10/01/sample-post/

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...

Thanks,

Arty Zifferini

Hi,

Using just 600 for .htaccess is enough (of course the file must be owned by the user that runs apache)
Just check the .htaccess in the root of your wordpress installation and see if it has something like:
Quote:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
Also make sure you have enabled mod_rewrite. Running
Code:
httpd -M
should show you if mod_rewrite is loaded

Regards

The WordPress Codex is usually a good pleace to start when dealing with WordPress problems. In this case: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks
