Have you made sure your .htaccess file is CHMOD to writable?
E.g permission 777?
Just tried CHMODing the htaccess file to 777 and then trying to change back to NONE permalinks – still not going back.
Thanks for the suggestion though!
I think on the admin panel (bbPress) there’s a link in the description of the permalinks settings part, that when you click it will display the .htaccess code thats meant to be in your .htaccess.
Now I don’t quite know why your having problems but I have also come across problems with something called multi views.
Sometimes permalinks won’t work because of multiviews not being ables. Try adding this to the very top of your .htaccess:
I already had the “Options -MultiViews” at the top and simply changed the – to + but that did not help to get the permalink setting back to none.
Do you know if your web-host supports multi views? Might be a idea to ask them. Although I am new to bbPress myself there might be something else causing problems. But from reading various topics permalink problems seems to be connected to the .htaccess.
I can’t really offer anymore help but im sure a moderator or other member will post help. When they see you topic.
Thanks for your help anyway Epiphone, it’s much appreciated.
Let’s see what the bbPress team come back with.
Thank you again
I think that’s just a glitch in the code because the permalinks remain in the “None” type (when saved as such) even so the dropdown in the general section of the admin menu will switch back to “Name based”.
For now, just make sure to reselect “None” when saving any other changes to General Settings I guess.
