What permission do you have on your .htaccess file…
I’m not sure. How would I change that?
Why is %postname% not recommended? I actually use only that at all times to any of the sites that I run.
Yeah, I use it all the time too. It’s weird that it’s not working now.
It’s not recommended because of the fact that post titles can become very long, so their URLs would be awkward and often break.
In my case, I’m not running a blog. I’m using WP more as a CMS than anything, and running an eCommerce site from it, so the URLs will be confined to such terms as ‘home’ and ‘about’.
