I am attempting to change the permalink structure on my blog to have the title post and day instead of the post number. When I do this, I receive a note that says : You should update your .htaccess now.
The thing is, forgive my ignorance, I have no idea how to fix that. What can I do to address this problem? Any help is appreciated.
That would be the contents of the .htaccess file that WordPress is trying to write out. It is giving you the code you need to copy and paste into .htaccess because it (WordPress) does not have sufficient permissions to re-write the file itself. It is making the assumption that you will be editing the file via FTP at that point. It sounds like you may need to get the IT admin involved for a few minutes in order to update the permalinks.
