I have a custom post type which i create and works perfect without any problem, its a team page to show some members in a company, also i created a single-team page to show more details about each member.

The problem is when i use Default Permalinks works without any problem, but when use Post name permalink a got 404 error page not found.

i hope i didn't miss anything to make this work.

  • Does your theme have other custom post types in it or any other plugins you are using?

Can you make sure that your .HTaccess is writable with necessary permissions that includes the Following as I suspect that WP is not able to alter it :

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
# END WordPress

  • Ok, but still can you check if there are suitable permissions for altering the Htaccess, this is important if you want to use permaliminks.
