New WordPress Theme, Issue with Permalink Settings

Hello, I am building a WordPress theme for my site and when I have the Permalink Settings to default I am able to access the pages I have on my site through the typical page.php template. However, when I change the settings to post name I get a 404 error when I try to arrive at any of those pages. Was hoping someone could shed some light.

Hi Chris,

Do you have the rewrite module enabled in Apache? Is you do check your Apache error log for clues as to why the rewrite rule isn't working.

Hi Chris Yes the rewrite module is enabled. Still trying to figure this out
