WordPress Permalink Solutions

Permalinks are the simplest aspect of a WordPress site to fix, but are often the cause of problems that occur when (for example) a new theme is installed. This small tutorial will show you how to take care of these pesky little annoyances for good.

Permalink ‘White’ or ‘Blank’ Page

If you get a blank page when you try to access the Permalink Settings page, you need to change the function got_mod_rewrite() in wp-admin/includes/misc.php to the following:

function got_mod_rewrite() {
 //$got_rewrite = apache_mod_loaded('mod_rewrite', true); //old line with false negative;
   $got_rewrite = true;//force the response to true as we know mod_rewite is installed;
   return apply_filters('got_rewrite', $got_rewrite);
}

What to Remember when Dealing with Permalinks in General

The permalink structure located in the ‘Settings’ area of your WordPress Dashboard must match the settings under your PHPMyAdmin ‘wp_options‘ settings as seen below.
