[resolved] how do I turn Pretty Permalinks on? (5 posts)

    I just read this page (http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks) which explains alot about permalinks....

    but im still wondering how I actually turn this on?

    I realize I need to put an .htaccess in my directory, but what do I write in the .htaccess file, is there a place in the admin of my blog to set this up?

    Thanks.

    Right out of the page you **just read**.

    Choosing your permalink structure

    In the Options → Permalinks panel, you can choose one of the "common" structures or enter your own in the "Custom structure" field using the structure tags.

    Options → Permalinks panel <-- that would be inside wp-admin/

    hi whooami thanks for your reply, I am sorry for such the n00b questions..

    I am inside my wp-admin/ page and maybe im retarded or blind but I cannot see "options" anywhere...I see:
    Settings,Plugins,Users
    Write,Manage,Design,Comments
    admin! | Log Out | Help | Forums

    I also tried ctrl+F and searched for options with no luck.

    Not sure what I am doing wrong, could it be my version (2.5) has the options link somewhere else or something?

    Thanks
