    i know that others have answered this question, but i'm not entirely sure as to the method...

    how do i create a permanent link to a particular entry in wp 1.5? (for example, an "About" page)

    i've seen the Permalink Structure page on WP but i'm still not sure ...

  2. You don't create a permalink. Once you active permalinks, everything has a nice permalink. See:

    how then do i link to my "About" page?

  4. You could add it as a link via the Links manager or into your sidebar via this code:

    <li><h2><?php _e('About Menu Title'); ?></h2>
    <ul>
    <li><a href="http://www.domain.com/aboutpage/">About</a></li>
    </ul>
    </li>

    thanks! but i've been looking around at "permalinks" ... will "http://tjinh200.com/tjinh200/?page_id=12" stay the same for all visitors? also, if you have the time ... do you know why on my "About" page, part of the left side of the "body" of the about page is cut off?

  6. Yes, "http://tjinh200.com/tjinh200/?page_id=12" is a permanent link. it's just not a "pretty permalink". I'm not sure about your about page though. Hopefully someone else knows.

    speaking of permalinks, both the above links are 404

  9. Yeah, the Codex is down for maintenance. See:
