Changing page names from "page_id=.." to page name (7 posts)

    Hi all!

    I searched for this topic and couldn't find the answer so please forgive me if it has already been answered.

    I am using WP 1.5 and would like for my pages to come up as http://www.mustardnut.com/archives/ vs. http://mustardnut.com/?page_id=88.

    I think that it use to be in .htaccess but I understand that file not to be necessary in WP 1.5?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi mustardnut,

    I had real difficulties with .htaccess in WP1.5.1.1 so ended up doing it slightly differently:

    I finally managed to fix it by downloading some software called HTAccessible which you can get from http://www.tlhouse.co.uk/HTAccessible.shtml

    What you do is create a .htaccess file using the software and upload it to your server.

    Then update your permalinks in WP-Admin, copy and paste the code it generates into the .htaccess file you've just generated and upload it again.

    It should then work.

    You can also make your own 404 error pages using the software.

    Thanks to you too! This did it. I just edited the permalinks structure and I am now set.

    josalmon - thanks again, I am going to use htaccessable to create the custom 404 error pages.... unless there is another way?

    Check out the Deafult theme - it has a custom 404 page/template.
