I'm currently having issues with my site. It seems like the Permalinks are acting wacky. When I set the permalinks to /%category%/%postname%/ all posts, single pages and archive are working, BUT NOT pages ( Single directory level in the URL resolves in a 404. That said, if I take my About page and make it a child within another page, it magically shows up again (

Now when I set my permalinks to /%postname%/, all single pages and pages ( or show up, BUT NOT archive pages ( or URLs with multiple directory levels seem to now resolve in a 404.

I've been wracking my brains with this for a week now and still have not found a solution. Hope someone can help. Here's my website (

Thanks so much in advance.
