I set up my HTML code to go to /about/ and went into admin and changed my permalink to %postname% and it is still not working. I have a page I made named About so it is there. When I click on the link it does go to http://www.linkcreativedesign.com/About/ but says page not available.
I dunno if it has to do with changing the .htaccess file but in the tutorial Chris says it should do it automatically. Im on the latest version of WP.
Which wordpress told me it didnt have access to automatically update and to ad this. I also have checked to allow groups and others to have writting access to it once I re uploaded the .htaccess file and its still not working.
There is a difference though.. the background of my site stays.. it just shows 404 not found in the browswer tab.. and of course does not show the "about" page content.
exactly, thats why I was making pages, to learn how to use wordpress as a CMS for my website, WITH a blog. Thats why I’m curious as to why he showed doing %postname% for the permalink when he made pages too. oh well it works whatever..
Hey, in my case %postname% works perfectly fine.. though I was unable to edit the .htaccess file at first.. but after adding that mod rewrite code [which I found here :P], its working fine now.. :) Thanks..
