Permalinks help (4 posts)

    Hi - I want to change my site links from http://www.mysitehere.com/wordpress/?page_id=89 to just http://www.mysitehere.com/pagetitle

    I went into Permalink Settings, applied the code /%postname%/ to the Custom Structure field. Then, I get a message I need to update web.config and my site breaks.

    Restoring the permalinks to default fixes my site.

    I don't see any web.config file in the WordPress directory. What folder would it be under and what do I need to modify in it?

    Why does my site not just update the links without this step? Thanks!

    I found a web.config file and placed it in the root WP folder, then went back and edited the Permalink Settings - and nothing.

    More info:

    We changed the URL of our site from something like wp.blank.com to blank.com and my sysadmin said the files didn't move, but the URL now points to the new domain.

    In the address bar, the site shows up as http://blank.com, which is good, but all other pages display as http://blank.com/wordpress/?p=125 (for example).

    In General settings, I have:

    WordPress Address (URL): http://blank.com/wordpress
    Site Address (URL): http://blank.com/wordpress

    How do I get my site's page to display as http://blank.com/pagetitle? I know I can set the Permalinks, and have tried, but they are not working, and I'm thinking I need to change the General setting URL(s) first.
