I was messing with some new plugins on one my wordpress blogs, now none of links to posts or pages work?

I tried everything I know, and no zero about coding and php. So far I have tried a new theme, uninstalled all non essential plugins, even upgraded to the latest wordpress edition.

Can anyone advise me where to start fixing this.

After putting nearly 100 hours on this site, it is really exhausting to see this.

Here is the link to my site:

    I looked at your site and the first thing that jumps out is that all the links end in PHP. Typically Wordpress blog links don't have that extension since the links are "virtual."

    If you've tried uninstalling all your plugins like MaxblogPress Favicon, Slimbox, Contact Form, Popular Posts, etc and that still doesn't fix the problem, then take a look at your .htaccess file. One of the plugins that you installed earlier may be rewriting the file paths and automatically adding a .php to the end.

    Just a thought...

    When you get that figured out... might I suggest this plugin for 404 handling - it spits out relevant articles from your blog matching keywords from the 404 url.

      Thanks fellow warriors. I figured it was the .htaccess file while taking a break away from it. I just copied the code from another one of my blogs .htaccess file that was working, pasted it into this blog and everything returned to normal.

      I am not sure but I think it was the redirect plugin that i downloaded that changed my .htaccess code.
