    Hey guys, I know I made the mistake of not checking post name in permalinks settings before making any posts, and so I tried changing the htaccess file to:

    # 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]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress

    but I am still getting the 404 error, whats up?

    I would revert to your unedited htaccess file and then go to settings > permalinks and set it there to what you want. It will also update your previously written posts.

    Hi Colin, that is what I did originally when I first received the 404 error

    That should have worked.

    If you want to set me up with an admin account and pm me the details I will take a look.

    Hey Colin, thanks I got, it was the plugin WPML for the translation, that had to be disactivated, then change permalinks settings to custom name, then reactivate WPML plug in
