Need Help with WordPress

Hello Readers,

Its once again my turn to ask for help. This time, it is regarding the WordPress installation and problems that I have been facing with permanent links (permalinks in WordPress parlance), since I have not been able to customize it to my liking. I have version 2.0.4 of WordPress installed on Godaddy’s linux hosting package. I have edited and completely changed the “default” template for WordPress to make the look and feen consistent with the rest of my website.

As you can see, I have a lot of posts and under a few categories. When it comes to category links, a trailing slash at the end of the URL is making a lot of difference. i.e. for the category link:

http://www.planetarypositions.com/notes/category/astronomy/

if I remove the last slash and then refer to the URL as follows:

http://www.planetarypositions.com/notes/category/astronomy

Then Apache returns an error of 404 and the page does not appear at all. I suspect it is a problem/bug in the Godaddy’s wordpress installation. I searched on the net and found out the following thread on the wordpress support site:

http://wordpress.org/support/topic/81515?replies=6

I have also been playing around with the .htaccess file under the notes folder, but not been able to find out the exact combination that would work. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?
