What is so "foreign language" in creating a simple text file, putting in the code given to you and uploading it to the server?
There is a lot of technical jargon I don't understand.
Or reading the instructions... Using_Permalinks.
I have read that and still don't quite understand.
I did find the post somewhere that said .htaccess is a plain text file I create which can be blank and then upload it to my directory. However, up until I spent 2 days on and off going through posts to find that info, I didn't know that. I do think it should be clearer in the documentation.
Then also, once a permalink structure is set; what do I add to said .htaccess file? I am unaware of the meaning of the terms described in documentation and posts and nothing was understandable to me. What goes in that file? I will re-read everything again but I was looking for someone who could explain 'how to make it work' to me in "n00b" terms.
Lastly, pardon if I am reading your reply the wrong way but it your reply seems faintly vindictive presumptuous that I hadn't thouroughly researched the topic before asking. I have.
Thank you for your reply.
