    I was getting ready to install WordPress then I read the requirements and noticed that mod_rewrite was required. I have to ask, why? What features to work, need this?

    If I don't have mod_rewrite installed will WordPress still work, what features won't?

    Thank you

    Without "funky" URL your 4th post might have this address:
    while using the "nice" permalinks it would show up like
    Same for the categories, but I think you got the idea.
