Support » Fixing WordPress » Changing Permalink Structure

  • I want to change my permalink structure numeric, but I have know idea what I’m doing, or what I have to do with .htaccess I’ve tried to read some guides but I just don’t understand what I’m to do?

    Also I have a handful of post under the default structure, do I have to do something extra to change them as well?

    Have you reviewed Using_Permalinks?

    do I have to do something extra to change them as well?

    No. The changes will affect all posts – old & new.

    Yeah I did read it, and I’m still not sure what I’m doing or where to start.

    Have you tried using the numeric preset permalink structure in Settings->Permalinks?

    yeah did that but when I do that I get a 404 error for every page beside the home page

    Check with your hosts that mod_rewrite is running on your server.

    Where would I go to find that (besides emailing C.S.)

    I use Ipage is my host, there is an .htaccess editor
    but can’t see, to find any place to put the permalink code

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
