I am designing a wordpress theme on my computer for a company. I have wamp installed. I went into the admin area and changed my permalink to custom using / postname / So now when I go to add a page and I type the name of the page, it shows up underneath the page title with the correct link structure and the edit button appears to change the link. This is all good. That’s what I would expect. But when i go to the homepage and click the about button, or contact or anything else. I get an error saying “the requested url was not found on the server” Any ideas?

Probably have your .htaccess file done wrong. If you make the file have full read/write access Wordpress can properly build it.

I figured it out. I had just / postname / as the custom option. it worked when I added index.php.

index.php/ postname /

this is version 2.7.1
