    minty, if you have cpanel I would recommend installing WP through fantastico. So delete current files and just install through cpanel.

    If not there's either something wrong w/ your initial installation or the theme your using.

    By the look of your url´s you have your permalinks set as %postname%.

    For this to work you have to edit your htaccess (if WP didn´t do it for you on auto).

    It should look like this:

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

    # END WordPress

    Now I do see something strange in the url.
    Looks like you installed the blog in a folder named ":".
    Is that true?

    And another tip:
    insert a blank html-file in your plugin folder.
    I can see all the plugs you´re using.

    The default (aka the root) is just fine. But that doesn´t explain where the : in your url comes from.

    ---------------------------------------
    Simple way to make a blank html:

    Make a new TEXT-file on your comp.
    Name it index.html
    Upload this to your plugin folder and any other folder you don´t want people snooping around in.

    Folders that have a index.html or a index.php don´t need this.

    The htaccess you are looking for is located in the root folder of your blog.
    The same location where i.e. you admin, content and include folders are.

    Just checked your site and saw the 404´s are gone.

    One more thing.
    Go to your translator plug and adjust the setting to 2 or 3 rows.
