Pretty permalinks are working but I got message: htaccess is not writeable (2 posts)

    Hello,
    can you help me with this, please, I am confused:
    - I set /%postname%/ structure and IT IS WORKING ok , I put the htaccess file in the place it should be
    - so pretty permalinks are working, posts and pages opening but nevertheless I STILL got that message "if your htaccess were file writeable we could do this automatically" at bottom of screen in permalinks under General settings.

    How can that be?
    Will I have troubles with wordpress (plugins and everything) if I just leave it this way?

    Thanks

    Or should I solve that before I continue with my work on that site?

    I updated wordpress to 3.5.1 , permalink strukture /%postname%/ is working, but I still have that error mesage about .htaccess file:
    ...if your htaccess were file writeable we could do this automatically ...

    I was wondering if anyone has the same situation - permalink structure working althogh wordpress doesn't recognize that .htaccess is writable ?!!!

    Site is on Brinkster server ( windows but php is supported) I checked and .htaccess has all the read write permissions (I think - I can go to control panel and I can see files and folders permissions although I can not change them, but all permissins for .htaccess are checked, read and write...)

    What problems can I expect to encounter due to that error message about .htaccess not writable?

    Thanks.
