    If this is outside of the range of support you offer, I understand. Any tips would help.

    If not a theme issue, this may be a server related issue. Once I enable permalinks, using /%category%/%postname%/ or any other option, the menu links break. The home and external links continue to work. I’ve changed .htaccess permissions to 666, enabled mod_rewrite in apache, restarted the server, and tried creating custom.htaccess code. I know wordpress has access to the file because it makes changes to it. I’m running my own Ubuntu server for development.

    Hi Cord ,

    Which menu links is that? It could be as simple as going into the wordpress menu manager and re-building your menu. That is under Appearance >Menus.




    The menu is the custom main menu I created under Appearance >Menus. I’m using it in the Incarantion Main Menu location. I tried deleting the menu and recreating it. Also, the blog links in the sidebar are not working, “The requested URL /uncategorized/post-5/ was not found on this server.”. Hope this helps.


    Can we take a look at the site live? If its a permalink issue in general, there isn’t a lot we can do about it but maybe we can spot something by seeing the site live and inspecting the menu links a bit.




    Absolutely, the site is temporarily hosted at http://cordvarty.dyndns.org/. So the “Roots” page, under “About Us”, is “http://cordvarty.dyndns.org/?page_id=46” and after permalinks is enabled, it is “http://cordvarty.dyndns.org/roots/”. Once permalinks is enabled and you use the old url, it forwards you to the new one but the page still doesn’t load.


    I would suggest trying the permalink troubleshooting tips from the codex: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks#Fixing_Permalink_Problems

    If you happen to be on a windows server, there are more complicated issues but the above link addresses them.
