Searching Google for solutions to this oddball problem didn’t seem too helpful unless you spent quite a bit of time looking into it or are tech savvy enough to decode what most people are saying about WordPress permalink issues on GoDaddy hosting.

Then re-save your WordPress Permalinks and hopefully.. voila!
