Permalinks and page names (2 posts)

    I got mod_rewrite installed on my server so I could clean up my site's urls. In the custom structure section of permalinks options I entered this:

    /%page_id%/

    But it doesn't seem to be working. Instead of "mysite.com/about-us" the links still show up as "mysite.com/?page_id=52"

    What am I doing wrong?

    OK, never mind. Apparently, it doesn't actually *change* the links. It just makes it so that you can pull them up with either the page name, or the page id.

    The problem I have now is that my style sheets aren't working anymore. I read the bit in the support topic about this and it suggested adding some numeric data. So I changed my rewrite rules to:

    /%year%/%page_id%/

    But the pages still come up like this
