can't understand Using Permalinks in the Codex

  • Talk about a foreign language! I was hoping for something that starts off in real English and stays that way until the new user understands what they have to do!

    I installed Bulletproof Security and it says I must have Custom Permalinks for it to work. Well that was the last sentence I actually understood. Using Permalinks jumps into complex stuff, leaving out a great deal of simple explanation that a new person would need.

    It says there are 3 basic types of WordPress permalinks and then only describes 2 of them in techy language that means nothing to me.

    It says enter your own Custom structure but how? How do I know what to put on the end of http://mysite.com/ ? As I said it’s all like a foreign language. Can anyone help (in English please?)

    I’m going to try this /%postname%? with really no idea what I’m doing…..
