WordPress post appears in lists but 404s when opened

Background of this problem

It happened when I created a post with this very blog.

I scheduled a post and then clicked the preview URL. The page was a 404. Every other post worked fine until now.

My configuration for Permalinks was a custom structure.


The solution

I set the Permalinks back to the default structure (http://www.gregpike.net/?p=123). Saved changes.

Then set it back to my custom structre.


My guess is the .htaccess file needed some massaging, though I didn’t touch it directly.

Edit: Someone with similar experience.
