    The only way individual posts work is if I have it set to p?=1, etc. But I recently changed it to show the date and what not, but it won't work. I didn't have this problem with my old host. I'm with servage.net now.

    Anyone know how I could fix it? Thanks.

    What do you mean "It won't work"? That's *very* general. Link to the site? Do you have mod_rewrite enabled on your server? Is your .htaccess file writeable? There's all kinds of things that could be the issue, you're not telling us any information that could help (except to shoot in the dark)...

    Sorry. I'm usually more descriptive, but I was sleepy at the time hah.

    The site is http://www.punk-news.com, I installed wordpress with an auto-installer. It's not fantastico, but their own custom installer.

    Anyways, I checked my ftp, and there's no .htaccess file, so I don't know if it's writable.

    You need to ask your host if mod_rewrite is installed and maybe something about allow override also (where's handy when you need him and search is doing it's "I can't find anything" stupidity? *sigh*)

    I submitted a ticket with my host and I'll give you more info on mod_rewrite. Although it says it's enabled on their frontpage. I asked if they allow override.

    Hi Lejovit, to you and anyone with such a problem in the great Servage hosting: by default .htaccess files are deactivated for security reasons.
    To put .htaccess file into action, log in to the control panel, click on Web server and then on 'Set .htaccess file'. Confirm the activation and wait some hours, then click around your site and see the rewritten links begin to work.
