    I just learned to build a auto blog according to the knowledge studied here.
    But I got a problem. I cannot access the full content of the posts. when I click on the titles, the site crashes.
    Is there anyone know the reason? I will be very grateful to get your help.:confused:
    My site is here:

    h__p://homecenterjob.com

    Just visited your site and when I click the title, I got your server main directory...

    Check your permalinks for a start:
    use : %postname% instead of /?p=18

    does it matter if its %postname% as opposed to /%postname%/

    all my permalinks on my legit blogs are with the / /

    Guessing you have f***d up the .htaccess file, or the server configuration denies usage off .htaccess (allowoverride off)

    Do you have access to server logs somwhere? There should be a log explaining what the error actually is.

    I guess probably you should have overwrite your .htaccess in the root folder of your domain. I did that before and whichever link i clicked, it lead to error pages.

    1.) Did you changed your blog url from http://homecenterjob.com/wordpress to http://homecenterjob.com?

    2.) If yes to question1, did you ever edited or touched .htaccess at the root folder?

    IF your answer is yes for BOTH, you may try to paste to following code back into .htaccess in the root. ONLY THIS CODE, save and try again.

    Code:
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress
    WARNING: I can't guarantee anything and do it at your own risk.

    That's what i experienced before and my site was in "error" mode for days till i found it.

    Hope this help. Good luck.
