    I have an issue with one of my sites - it has permalinks set up, pretty URLs basically.

    When you click on any sub page, you get a forbidden error.

    I have goggled and applied the obvious fixes - edits to htaccess etc so its not a majorly simple problem.

    It almost seems like its a hosting issue, BUT I have lots of wordpress sites on the same host, and they all work fine, except for this one.

    Can anyone resolve? Please PM me with price.

    Its sorted now guys - It turned out that because there was a folder in the root of the install with the same name as one of the pages (even though I wasn't necessarily accessing that page) it caused everything else to fail.

    As soon as I renamed that folder, everything worked.
