HELP!!!! I installed the ShareThis plugin and checked it on several pages and all the links are broken. I am getting the error 404-page not found…. see this link https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7296910/404.pdf
I disabled and deleted the plugin, cleared the cache, restarted and am still getting the 404 error. What do I do next? And how can I avoid this in the future? It is so frustrating.

fyi… i do have a backup of the website and database created by EZPZ OCB plugin dated 7/30/13 if it comes to that. But I want to find out what happened and how to avoid it in the future.July 31, 2013 at 4:34 am #132181July 31, 2013 at 5:02 pm #132182July 31, 2013 at 5:04 pm #132183July 31, 2013 at 5:33 pm #132184
ok… i went back to the default setting for permlinks and it works fine. But when i reset the permalink for custom setting “post-name” or /%category%/%postname%/ it breaks again. WP support says that maybe I need to delete the .htaccess file from the server. Will that solve the problem of the custom setting? Will the server automatically create a new htaccess file?August 1, 2013 at 8:40 pm #132185
Just noticed that now that the permalinks are set to default the “events/calendar’ page link does not work…. probably because it is still set for the page title instead of the “default” page ID. Please advise.

You can refresh the permalinks by either deleting the htaccess file and then re-setting your permalink options or try getting wordpress to do it by re-saving the postname permalink setting 3-4 times and see if that helps.
The codex has a number of other steps you can try when troubleshooting your permalink issues here http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks#Fixing_Permalink_Problems
