Right now, I’m developing a CMS website on WordPress using WAMP. My pages are now “www.site.com/page id=1”, etc. I’d like them to be “www.site.com/contact”, etc. Using WAMP, I can’t get pretty permalinks to work. I get a “not found” error if I try to use /%postname%/ with my static pages. (Yes, I’ve tried the “httpd.conf” trick in WAMP, and inputting code into .htaccess)
Question is: If I can live with ugly permalinks while I’m developing the site, will this be easy to configure once the site is live? In other words, is WAMP the only thing standing in my way when it comes to pretty permalinks working?
Thanks in advance.
