[resolved] Error when changing to 'pretty' permalinks (3 posts)

    I'm using 2.5 and I want to switch my permalink structure to 'pretty permalinks' (/%postname%) for SEO purposes, and am having some problems. Each time I try to update them, the admin panel says the update has been successful, but then I try to view a post on my site and get an Error 404 page. I read several WP permalink articles, but the whole .htaccess file thing is still a little confusing for me.

    Does anyone know what might be causing this problem?

    Yahoo! hosting (the one you are using) doesn't support .htaccess.
    Permalinks without mod_rewrite

    Thanks for replying, I'll check out that link. :)
