Need to remove extra folder from page URL

I am running WP 3.5.1. When I begin adding a new page, the page URL defaults to something like
Permalink: http://www.seltzerlicensing.com/nautilus
But when I publish this page, it adds the parent page:
Permalink: http://www.seltzerlicensing.com/in-action/nautilus

Problem: newly publish pages do not show up. Either I get a page not found (within WP) or I get a "This page can't be displayed".
I created a new top-level page "success stories" and added a new page underneath.

http://www.seltzerlicensing.com/success-stories/nautilus/

It still didn't show up and gave the error message instead.

Permalinks is setup as follows:
Post name: http://www.seltzerlicensing.com/sample-post/ 

I do not know what is causing this problem. How can I publish a new child page and have it show up properly?

Thank you.

It`s look like a permalink structure issue. Did you try to change your permalink to something else like the default one which is page?id=12? And them switch back to the sample post. Is it working? Also, do you have the right to write the htaccess file at the root of your website? What about the posts? Are they ok?

The site was switched recently from a windows server to a unix server so that the link rewrite module would work properly. Permalinks were then changed.

There are no posts - only pages - on this website.

What do I do now?

Below is the .htaccess file contents
# BEGIN WordPress

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]


# END WordPress

Looks good to me!
Oh, just re-read everything, in you page, did you choose the parent page? Did you put none?

On the new pages, I did select a parent page.
I also tried creating a new parent page and then attaching a new page to that parent, but the child page didn't work

Well, I am out of idea. What I can do is to take a look at your WordPress setup but I need admin right. Up to you, you can send me your information at contact@itinmind.ca. Let me know.

Thank you for your suggestions. At this point I do not feel comfortable giving out the password, especially as it is the site of a client.

No problem, I understand. Maybe you can ask a local WordPress expert to help you out... Good luck!
