    I am unable to figure out where the htaccess file is and what it should contain if I want to change the links of word press posts and pages.
    please guide me as to how to change and what to change to with at least one example. Help is much appreciated.

    thanks

    If you change your permalink structure via Settings -> Permalinks, WordPress will create the necessary .htaccess file for you. If it cannot do so, it will provide you with the rules to add to an .htaccess file manually. This file needs to be added to your WordPress root folder.

    can i use custom structure? I tried adding category base as "explorations" and tag base as "win dfc". Now how do I link this to a post?

    You can use any of structure tags outlined in Using_Permalinks. Changes to the category and tag base will affect category & tag pages across the site automatically.

    how do I link this to a post?

    The same way you have always linked to a post. WordPress handles all of the rewrites for you.

    I keep getting .htaccess change required message and then the pages don't load at all? What should I do with this htaccess file? I don't see one in the app install directory?
