    Hi all,

    I am building a new Wordpress site at

    I have nine pages which I want in my tabbed navigation - so far it's been a breeze.

    However, when I switch permalinks on, i get an error when I click on 'Reflexology' and it goes to How can I get the tabs to go to the correct URls - as they do now - but display the content?

    I want to display and the same for the rest of the tabbed options. Could it be my .htaccess or another reason?

  2. What permalink setting are you using?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I am currently using /pagename/, but I have tried a few including /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/ and they do not seem to work either. I Googled the issue and, having seen it here,
    posted the below in my .htaccess, but that's not worked either:

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

    I am truly stumped by this one - any advice gratefully receievd.

  4. I always use /%category%/%postname% and don't have any problems.

    Have you tried using the custom menu settings (on the left under appearances)?

    Yep, just tried /%category%/%postname% and still no joy :o(

    Also I tried creating a new menu and adding a category and also all the pages - but it still directs to error pages for all the tabs.

    Still mystified by this one as the default permalinks work fine...

    Could it be that my .htaccess is the issue - it has a User Permission setting of 000?

    I cannot think of anything else I am doing which would cause the problem :o(

  7. Go ahead and change it to find out—you can always change it back.

    My host states I cannot have Wordpress SEO-friendly URLs onmy Windows hosting account - and that I should switch to Linux. There's not much work involved in doing this, but I wanted to ask whether you have experienced this before - is there really no way of doing this using Wordpress on Windows?
