I am new to WordPress. I am trying to set-up a site that is mostly static (80%), with a few focussed blogs.
As there will be several static pages, and for SEO reasons I would like to use pretty permalinks. But when I try to set-up permalinks, adding a .htaccess file as per instructions, access to the site is blocked from some machines. I get the following message:
“Access Denied (content_filter_denied). Your request was denied because of its content categorization: Blogs/Personal Pages”. This is a message produced by Blue Coat Web Filters.
With the default (?p=123) permalinks selected I can access the site fine. Preferably, I would like to use PostName, but when sellecting this the site is blocked by Blue Coat.
Is there a setting that I can change in the .htaccess or someother addin that allows for pretty permalinks that are not blocked by Web Filters?
Any advice welcome.
