I've got a custom content type ("charity listing"). Nodes in this content type should have the automatic alias charities/view/[name-of-charity]. They do indeed have this alias, when I try to edit a node the alias is there. However, typing the URL alias into the browser gives me a 404 error.

I have tried re-generating all the automatic URL aliases. Still doesn't work.

Help much appreciated!

Did you check that the path aliases are pointing to the correct URL? May you show a screenshot showing the editing page for one of those path aliases? – kiamlaluno Jul 21 '11 at 13:13

Do you have any folder's in your root directory called "charities" or is there any rewrite rule in your.htaccess file? I know it's a long shot, but I had a very similar problem once and this turned out to be the cause.

Also, try putting "?q=" before the alias when you type in the url and see if that works (e.g., http://yourdomain.com/?q=alias/path). it will point to problems related to my other suggestions.
