    Permalinks

    When I try to change the format of my permalinks it says this

    If your .htaccess file were writable, we could do this automatically, but it isn’t so these are the mod_rewrite rules you should have in your .htaccess file. Click in the field and press CTRL + a to select all.

    But the problem is when I look on my server I dont see an .htaccess file at all. So what do I do?

    Create it and move it through FTP to your site,

    Open Notepad
    Paste the code in it WP say you.
    Go to save
    Pick all files from dropdown box bellow filename
    Type filename .htaccess
    Save

    Upload that file to your public_html folder.

    we can do via cpanel online, click on newfile menu at top left corner, paste your code and save it.


    but i dont think this is good. if you have custom .htaccess file then that is rewrite and you will loss old file.

    so better to find file by using ftp client like filezilla and then download, edit and then reupload.

    Thanks for the input, now that I have done this the links work if you click the direct one to my articles. But if you click the particular category it shows that the files can not be found. Before I switched when one clicked on the categories it showed all the articles that were written and I posted in that particular category. The URL is http://redpundit.com and the categories are words on the blue menu, you can see what I mean. Thanks

    do you use custom structure and if yes can we get your code for it?

    or you using one of predefined permalinks structures?

    can you chmod htacces to 777 then resave permalinks structure
    and then chmod htaccess back to 644?

    I just figured it out, when you mentioned custom structure I realized I need to add the %category% in front of what I already had. Thanks
