404 Error After Installation - /%category%/%postname%.html
|Reported by:||bvandrunen||Owned by:||dd32|
In our environment we have the field "permalink_structure" set up automatically on installation due to our many wordpress installations. Around 25-30 a day. The bug arrives because everything installs correctly but when you select any page besides the home page you are met with a 404 error. However if you go to the "permalinks" tab in the wordpress interface and then go back to your site...the site works correctly.
Therefore the fix is just to visit the "permalinks" tab. You don't even have to click save changes, only visit the page. Somehow our "custom structure" of "/%category%/%postname%.html" upon installation isn't activated until we actually visit the page. This is a problem...because our blog is set up automatically with database scripts and we don't have time to manually go to each wordpress installation and click on the "permalinks" tab. Thanks
