I've just installed Faked Folders and am on my first foray with it. I've encountered the "you need an .htaccess file" message:
Failed to find .htaccess file. If you wish to use this plugin completely please ensure that this file exists and it has the correct permissions.
What are the correct permissions? (I'm not so geeky that I can recall them off the top of my head. It requires forays into support fora and google searches to find out) On a related note, why not spell that out in the plugin itself, similar to the way that WP has the required chmod settings n the button for the templates. Hrm, on that note, maybe I'll try 666 and see if it works)
