    Help!!

    I am trying to create permalinks that look like this: http://www.parentingwithpleasure.com/postname like I have on my current site, raisingsmallsouls.com, for example: http://www.raisingsmallsouls.com/everything-versus-something/

    Under "permalinks" I put this into the "custom" field: /%postname%/ - and my entite http://www.parentingwithpleasure.com site got messed up!

    However, I was told to change my htaccess files- what are those and how do I find them and do that?

    Please help, thanks!!!

    The .htaccess file is in the root directory, where index.php and wp-config.php are. What's in it right now?

    Well, is your server Windows-based or Linux-based? Windows machines using IIS won't use the .htaccess file at all.

    Ellen, I emailed you.

    .htaccess is a file that needs to have a period before the filename. You may not see it on your FTP program if these types of files are hidden.

    Jon: the server looks like it's running Apache, btw.
