I posted earlier about a permalinks problem...and it occurred to me that I may be asking the wrong question. Perhaps I should consider whether permalinks are even a needed option for me. From what I understand of them, they are a permanent link to whatever entry they point to...am I right? If I understand correctly, they would serve the purpose of say...having your very first post introducing yourself via weblog...permanently posted on your index.php. Am I too far off here?I would really like to be able to do this...but I'm getting a 404 page not found error each time I use the function. I've updated simlinks in my .htaccess file and I've copied and pasted various combinations from wp-admin.php to see if I could get it working...but if I'm misunderstanding the purpose of permalinks...then I'm swinging a bat blindly. Can someone put me in the right place?
