switching from 1.5 to 2.0 wiped all my links out, fine done (I wasn't aware of the db backup plugin at the time & my former host never mentioned it, I was very new to WP, now just new lol)
on a new db now but after only 2 posts, i'm scared to go any further because they do not appear in the serps even after using the sitemap plugin
my structure is at name & date but I used to use the default customizable option (not the "default" option) with success in 1.5 so would prefer to stay that way but when picking that option, after hitting submit, the active radio button switches back to date & name... I wouldn't think my host has any power over what selection I make here??
when searching for the 2 posts I've made, neither one appear in the serps but how am I supposed to know whether it is my permalink setup or the S/E's not picking up my posts yet?
Until I find out the answer to this, I really don't see any point in posting anything because it may not go anywhere.
Sitting DIW. Please help. TIA.
FYI: I'm going thru Y! Small Biz hosting, no .htaccess that I can see thru filezilla's ftp.
