WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm using a subdomain multisite and I receive a 404 when trying to visit posts. The main domain works, but the permalinks aren't working. When I use the default permalinks, they work, but when I use the custom ones like this /base/%category%/%postname%/ it's not working.

I'm wondering if it has to do with my .htaccess, since I've been editing that quite a bit.

RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?nofillers.com$

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /$1

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?nofillers.com$
RewriteRule ^(/)?$ /index.php [L]

What if you use the default .htaccess and go editing it bit by bit? –  brasofilo Feb 23 '13 at 7:13

For permalinks you may have to include index.php before the custom permalink structure within the permalinks settings option panel:


Just a guess but thats what I had to do on a couple of my sites. Let me know if that does not work and then we can look at your .htaccess file.
