Hello, I think I have a minor tweak that could help less technical bloggers. (I'm not so technical myself) Anyway, when one chooses another permalink other than the default, the .htaccess is modified to reflect the change. It replaces any previous modification. My server is set up with php4 something, and I have to put a line in the .htaccess so that it uses the php5 engine to achieve php5 functionality.
You see the problem? When permalinks rewrites .htaccess, it complete rewrites .htaccess and removes my modification. Unless you know better, it takes a while to figure it out.
I suggest offering the user that option to append .htaccess
I checked the questions and did not see anything reflecting this particular issue.
Thanks in advance
