[resolved] Permalink issues (7 posts)

    I have been searching google all day to try to get them working but I can't seem to get anything concrete that should work. I went in my settings and changed my setup to 'pretty' permalinks. When I click on one of my posts it brings up the right link but it gives me a 403 error.

    WordPress did make me a .htaccess file when I switched the permalink feature on. When I go on my FTP and open .htaccess it says this inside:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    When I switch my settings back to the regular 'ugly' links everything works fine again. How do I approach this problem?

    Because I JUST did, and in 2 minutes spent following 2 links, located this:


    Google knows all. Search-fu is a must.
