I'd love if my permalinks were controlled by my htaccess file and my htaccess wasn't configured to send every wrong URL to wordpress's custom rewriter. I don't want my 404 page controlled by my WordPress theme.
I am really banging my head against the wall trying to get normal rewrite rules to work with wordpress. I want to switch my http://www.domain.com to domain.com for instance. I want to use rewrite rules in a part of my site that's not wordpress. I want control of my site back. I like WordPress, but it's overbearing in this area. Thanks.
