TOPIC: 404 Error on every page but my Homepage

Re:404 Error on every page but my Homepage 11 years ago #14816

I am having the exact same problem. However, I did try to insert the code listed above into my .htacess but the problem still persists. Any ideas?

I'm a novice at this and appreciate any guidance. I just can't seem to get this SEF working.

I'm using Joomla 1.52 (stable) and my site is hosted with Bluehost.

hello, I have exactly the same problem. what's wrong?

Re:404 Error on every page but my Homepage 11 years ago #14831

I was able to fix this problem by uninstalling MyContact - a joomla extension. I am using joomla 1.52. However, I did read somewhere that this may not actually be a problem with a conflict between the sef and mycontact but a problem in template. Someone was able to fix it by altering code. This didn't work for me.

I'm sorry I can't be more specific but I am a novice. I just uninstalled mycontact so this would run.

This worked for me guys, neopablix you are a legend. All I did was save the .htaccess file to my desktop then opened it with my preferred text editor and pasted the above code into the file. I have attached my .htaccess file so you can just add it in to your sites to see if that works.
Remember to back up your own .htaccess file just in-case it doesn't work.

Gary
