OK so this all stems from my site loading broken images on the feed page of a custom content type, for thumbnails. I noticed the sites/default/files/styles/thumnails was not writing the thumbs into the folder. I read on a forum to turn off clean URL's and this seems to fix it. The Issue now is I can't launch anything in my seven admin theme.

I goto configuration and it boots me to home page. I go anywhere on the admin Menu overlay and it boots me back to home screen.

I would like to get back Clean URL's so i can continue editing my site.

Any Ideas... also if you have a solution to make thumbnails start writing. I am using go daddy and it doesn't appear to let me check permissions on the folders internally.

Thanks
Matt

Hi @mattmcdougall,

Try to access the url http://mysite.com/?q=admin/config/search/clean-urls i.e. the clean url configuration path when clean urls are disabled and enable clean urls.

The thumbnail writing can be a issue with folder permissions or something else which needs to be debugged. The filesystem needs to be writable for the apache server.

Hth,
Sadashiv.

Hi,

You can enable clean urls using drush.

Use drush vset clean_url 1. This will enable the clean url now execute drush cc all and try to access the site.
