    When I click on a category in my sidebar I get an Error 404 message. How do I get current and past posts to be listed under the appropriate categories? I did click the relevant categories when I was creating the post.
    Thanks

    It's always important to include a URL for these types of questions so we can look at your site.

    It sounds like a permalinks problem but would need to see your URL to be sure.

    Goto Settings > Permalinks

    Change your permalinks settings to: /%postname%/

    And save..

    That should fix.

    Default RE: Permalinks

    Hi Dan,
    In the custom structure permalink box I already had /%postname%/. When I added /%category%/ before it one of the categories accessed the article. When I wrote the article I had selected two categories. At the top of the Edit Post page the permalink refers to only one of the categories (the one that works).
    I'm afraid I'm still doing something wrong (don't you just hate newbies?)
    Thanks

    You don't need anything but /%postname%/

    Default RE: Permalinks

    Thanks Lynn, but as I said when I leave it with just /%postname%/ the categories don't link to the articles. What else am I missing?

    If you want to send me a PM with an admin username and password I can take a look. There is definitely something funky going on with your permalinks and possibly some redirection going on.
