    I recently installed the wordpress software on my blog @ Story-Story. I have not been able to access any other page except the home page.

    What can I do to access the other pages. Please, help me out of this logjam.

    "Nice" permalinks don't work on Win servers (and you are hosted on such a server) - set the permalinks back to the default.
    After that read Using_Permalinks

    Thanks moshu,

    its working now after following your instructions. But what can I do to get my postname as the address? This numeric thing is just "too ugly" for my liking.

    Do I have to change to a dedicated server to enjoy that privilege?

    Pls, advise me on how to get out of the Win server limitation. I ran away from blogspot because of its obvious limitation, in comparison to WordPress, no server should limit my freedom of choice and variety.

    Win servers will always limit your "freedom of choice" - it is not WP, it is that server.
    Nobody ever should choose a Win server unless they need some specific MS product on their website!

    If you add index.php in your permalink structure you may have a permalink like
    example.com/index.php/post-title

    moshu, thanks again.

    That still leaves the question of how to get out of Win Server into a better server which would offer me the liberty of choice.

    Do I need to change to a dedicated server to do that or there are other type of servers (non dedicated) which may offer me this desired freedom?

    The ones running apache web server are what you're after.
