    I would check my .htaccess file. Make sure that it's writing your urls correctly. Also, log into your control panel and check the settings for your permalinks. Fix the permalink structure the way you want it, generate the code for your .htaccess file, and this should fix it.

    Good luck,

    Ok. The .htaccess file is a file in the main directory of your website. FTP into your hosting account to download it. Then you can open it in a text editor to see what is in it. If you log into your hosting account, and your .htaccess file says 0 bytes, it's probably not writeable and that's why it's not working.

    Change the permissions to 666 so that it's readable and writeable but can't be executed. You can do this with your FTP client too. Just click on the file, right click your mouse, and then change the numbers.

    The best place to get help with this is either the Wordpress forums or your web host. Your web host can check your account and tell you immediately what is happening.
