    WPMU 2.9.2
    All was working fine. Installed a couple of plugins and could no longer see sub-blogs. Error 404 on display of pages & posts. Navigation of them seems fine. Dashboard seems fine. Database seems fine. .htaccess seems right. Not sure what the plugin install changed, and then didn't fix when I removed them, but...I need a clue where to look.
    .htaccess seems untouched
    wp-settings.php appears fine
    Main site works fine.

    Rebooted server. Same problem. Anthoer example:
    http://websites.msdpt.k12.in.us/sm/classes/teams/stars/
    The fact that everything on the main site works leads me away from a rewrite or htaccess issue. And again, it ALL worked fine.

    The only thing I can find that must have caused the problem is an install of an "admin" plugin.

    Resave the permalinks page on the sub-blog & see if it shows up again.

    Just discovered that Media and Posts cannot be seen in the dashboard. The menu displays how many items are in the library, but no listing of them.
    Hope that helps...
    (Pages can still be edited, but not displayed.)

    Not sure how it happend, or if it matters, but not all sub blogs are set to the same permalink format. Does it matter?

    Nope. There wa s abug that was flushing rewrite rules.

    Also make sure AllowOverride FileInfo Options is in the httpd.conf file so mod_rewrite will actually read the htaccess file.

    If I test with this:
    http://www.webune.com/forums/how-to-test-check-if-mod-rewrite-is-enabled-t40.html
    Using only the following in .htaccess, it shows mod_rewrite working.
    # SCRIPT CREATED BY WEBUNE.COM
    # THIS WORKS WITH rewrite.php FILE
    # READ MORE AT: http://www.webune.com/forums/how-to-test-check-if-mod-rewrite-is-enabled-t40.html
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^link([^/]*).html$ rewrite.php?link=$1 [L]

    When I put the other WPMU statements in .htaccess, it fails.

    Setup the test of mod_rewrite in a separate directory instead of continually changing files.

    If it helps: The sidebar information changes to the appropriate site.

    Something's up with the server more like, or the plugin you used (what were they?) left some stuff behind.

    Great. Know any fix or anyone for hire to fix it? After today I'll be gone for a couple of weeks so I really need to solve this today.
    I tried several plugins looking for a wysiwyg that had everything my users have requested. Not sure which ones, but I'll dig into it. Folio is the one I kept.

    Andrea, Thank you for all your help. I just deactivated all the plugins and started over. Working now.
