Hi! With everyone who has purchased the “convergence” WP theme by Maximus, I’m hoping someone can help me.
I purchased the theme soon after it was released (not part of the bday bundle) and I cannot, for the life of me, change the permalink structure.
If I try to change the permalinks structure to anything different from the default ugly URLs, I get a 404 not found on all my posts…
So if you’ve worked on Convergence and managed to prettify your urls, any help will be highly appreciated.
instead of this %postname%
use this index.php?%postname%
it has nothing to do with the theme, some hosts are handling the permalink structure differently
also check if your htaccess file is writeable (chmod 777) and also check if your host does support htaccess
(you can easily check this by editing the htaccess with a text editor, write a random string into the file and upload it again, if you get a Server Error your htaccess file is supported, if nothing happens and you still can browse the site mail your host and tell them they should activate the htaccess support of your server)
