    Hi, I've never used wp-o-matic before but I seem to have everything set up ok, as it fetched post from different feeds and they look great on my homepage. However, when I click the link to go to the page of ANY post I get a 404 error? What is this? I only have wp-o-matic and platinum seo setup for plugins as this is a brand new blog. Please help!

    Thank you!

    It sounds like htaccess problem. Do you have htaccess
    Try this
    HTML:
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

    This is the error I get BTW:

    The requested URL /blogs/2009/round-2-leaf-book/ was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Did you change your permalink structure after writing your posts? It will sometimes throw the 404 error if you did. Why don't you show us the blog and we will be able to give more definitive answers?

    You can export a log using stat press I think that will show you where the links you click are sending you...might help?

    I changed the permalink structure when I first setup the blog from the default to /year/postname - I've done the same on all my other blogs. Does this f*ck up wp-o-matic?

    Thanks Nishville, I did both of those and still getting the error:

    Not Found
    The requested URL /keyword/ac-payment-for-audio-files/ was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    I found the solution to this problem today while f*cking around with this blog and just wanted to post it for any of you who might have the same problem. Under wp-o-matic/options - the cache check box was unchecked. When reading the info about it, it says that it's important to have this checked (so why do they let you uncheck it in the first place? - arg!). So I checked it and now the blog work fine!
