I tried to use the mod-rewrite generator at to change my custom urls to but keep receiving a wordpress 404 error.

If you are already using pretty permalinks, make an about page then make it the parent page of all your product pages.

Or use the rule:

RewriteRule ^information/about/([^/] )/?$ information/?about=$1 [L,NC]

All answers wrong. Login to admin area. On the left menu, under settings find permalinks. You can choose or add proper settings there.

I agree with @borayeris - Wordpress has it's own permalinks page under Settings - use that.
