I am currently using /index.php/archives/%... for my permalinks, are there any cons to using index.php instead of getting .htaccess and mod_rewrite working together (I have mod_rewrite on my virtual server, I just did not want to bother with .htaccess)?
I am very impressed with WP! I have no experience with this kind of stuff but thanks to a great hosting company (aplus.net -unix/Solo XR plan) and WP it was extremely easy to setup.
These forums are great! I have found tons of info on almost everything I have searched for (lots of stuff since I am so new).
(oooh, they just sent back my hosting server ID, time to setup SSL...)
