    is there any way to make the individual post pages be regular ol' html pages?
    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    Well, they are regular HTML pages. PHP outputs HTML. I think you might mean if the individual posts output static pages (Or SEF pages).

    Take a look at the permalinks setting. I think thats what you're looking for.

    i guess i was thinking of the ?= part having an effect on getting each page indexed by search engines. i have heard conflicting ideas on that anyway but want to err on the side of caution and do them as html pages. not a big deal really, but i possible i would like to do it.
    thanks a lot fo the response though. this forum rocks!

    You can use mod_rewrite. What it does is make http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?this=that&yes=no look like http://www.yoursite.com/this/that/yes/no or whatever you want.

    Go to Options > Permalinks in the WordPress admin area. Read the instructions, decide how you want your links to look, write it out, then click Update Permalink Structure. What that will do is create some text for you to copy and paste into a file called .htaccess which sits in your root directory. Open it up (through your hosts's file manager program, probably) edit that file, and paste that stuff in there. Should work like a dream.

    hmmmm. I pasted the code into .htaccess and for some reason when i click on the pages, it says page cannot be found.

    Any thoughts?

    Make sure you don't have any extra carriage returns in your htaccess, matt7267. Also, what version are you running? I've seen a few posts about problems with permalink structure in the nightlies.
