Sometimes a WordPress website for seemingly no reason at all delivers the dreaded 404 “page not found” error for pages and posts that actually exist.

You can often correct this problem by re-saving your permalink settings. We find that by doing this, the site’s .htaccess file is recreated and the 404 errors disappear.

If you have created custom permalinks for certain posts, you will want to verify that those posts still render appropriately after saving the permalink structure.

Follow our short tutorial below and we hope you’ll fix this problem straight away! And of course, do this at your own risk and always, always back up your website prior to futzing with it.
