    Hello,
    I have a problem with my sites permalinks using wordpress.

    To be more specific custom permalink of %postname% is not working.

    With others permalinks all site posts works good, but when I change to %postname% I get:

    "Sorry, the page your requested could not be found, or no longer exists."
    But I am sure that It exists!

    Anyone can give me advice how to fix that?

    Cheers.

    Didn't helped.

    I need only %postname% permalink since i already started link building to It.


    Any other suggestions?

    try to reset the permalink to the default structure ie with post id. save the settings and check the permalinks of the pages. once verified switch them back to %postname%. it should work.

    Before I also met this and it turned to be the theme problem. Why not change to a different theme and check whether it works?

    Hey, Did you edited .htaccess file?

    The permalink problem occurs mostly due to .htaccess, just have a look at it or just contact the hosting provider, they will help you to solve this issue.

    Thanks

    You've probably messed something through the .htaccess file.

    Copy your htaccess file onto notepad. Delete all the info in the htaccess file, change perma links and try again. This is how I have sorted the same issue before.

    There is no problem with this, Wordpress will redirect automatically to the new URL even if your backlinks are pointed to the old one.

    Just try it and see, change your permalinks structure, and just browse your old permalink structure and you will see that WP will redirect to the new one without you knowing it...
