Trouble with Pretty Permalinks and Yahoo (3 posts)

    Hello. I've searched and read a number of threads on this, but most very old and of course closed.

    Near end of rope -- can't find any way to have pretty permalinks since I'm hosted at Yahoo. Site is http://www.chrisparente.com

    I need to do year/date/title format since that is the format I imported from four years of wp.com blogging. Otherwise the redirect breaks.

    I've seen this partial work around, but the string match has to be exact, correct?

    Would love any ideas before I have to move hosting. Thanks in advance.

    Yahoo's basic hosting plan does not support WordPress at all. Their other plans do support WordPress according to their plan comparison chart, but it is not specific if they allow .htaccess file. You may confirm it from Yahoo support.

    Here is another thread related to this topic:

    Thanks for reply Krishna. Yahoo support said no access, and didn't try to upsell me so I doubt the other packages allow. The insertion of index in my permalinks breaks the forward from my site on wp.com.

    If anyone knows a workaround for that, I'd be eternally grateful.
