I've just set up LJ code and for the most part everything works like a charm except for the URLs mentioned in subject. I'm getting 404 error and this item in apache log:
[Sun Jan 23 17:55:32 2005] [error] [client ip.add.re.ss] File does not exist: /users/system/285.html
Manually constructed old-style urls with talkread.bml or talkpost.bml (/talkread.bml?user=system) DO work, however. Can someone enlighten me with a hint or two?
