View Full Version : My pages/categories won't work?

11-07-2010, 06:23 AM
Hi, I'm just starting to get my blog http://www.ababall.com up and for some reason when I click on pages or categories they don't go anywhere? how do I set them up so they link to the right page /post etc?

check your permalink settings are set to custom and /%postname%/

Hi, I have checked my permalinks and everything is fine, however underneath where you save your custom settings it says: If your .htaccess file were writable, we could do this automatically, but it isnít so these are the mod_rewrite rules you should have in your .htaccess file. Click in the field and press CTRL + a to select all. and then gives me a load of code:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

does this mean something is wrong? if so could you tell me what to do to fix it?

It means you need to change the permissions on your .htaccess file via FTP or a File Manager.. change them to 666 or ask your webhost to do for you..

Hi I have changed the permissions to 666 in my file manager and when I go to my site http://www.ababall.com it's still the same.very frustrating.

Please could you have another look at it for me, if you need to access my admin dashboard I can give you the login details?

You need to go back and save the permalinks once you've changed the permissions. If you want me to do just PM me access.
