    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 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.

    any ideas?


    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..


    You can use %postname% as your permalink and it should work for both posts and pages.

    You mention your page being named About, but your link is looking for about. Notice the capital letter vs lowercase letter.

    Go to your About page in Edit Pages and see if the url matches.
