I am currently using a post to pdf plugin 'Hacklog down as pdf' which works ok. I've used it before in a current working environment.

It suddenly stopped working but I have found out that when changing my permalink structure to the default '?p=5463', for example, it works perfectly.

It stops working when I switch back to the custom structure /%category%/%postname%/. Since I must keep it this way, I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how I might get around this problem.

I believe that since the plugins uses /generate.php?id=5463 to generate pdfs it may be be expecting the id but in fact being passed the permalink structure causing the error.

Could a solution be with my .htaccess file? Ideas would be much appreciated!

ERROR message:

No webpage was found for the web address:


Error 6 (net::ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND): The file or directory could not be found.

  • Search for that path in the plugin source. If it is a relative path as it appears to be, make it an absolute one and see if that helps. – s_ha_dum Apr 16 '13 at 13:14
  • I think I'm also going to follow the trail for how %category% works. As it seems the plugin only fails when this exists. For now i'm just going to use %postname% as a temporary fix. – zilj Apr 16 '13 at 13:21
