    I just tried to change the Permalink structure to custom structure but when I did that, it asked me to update my .htaccess.

    I tried this:

    1. Open an editing program (Notepad).

    2. Copy and paste this code:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteBase /

    RewriteRule ^index.php$ – [L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]


    3. Clicked Save (CTRL+S)

    4. Change the filename to: .htaccess

    5. And saved the file in the format “All files” not (txt).

    And then i saved the file in the same folder that i have my blog but it still dosent work.

    What have I done wrong?


    Hi sarastenberg,

    The quickest route to figure out whats going on would be to just contact your hosting provider and ask for some guidance. Different servers have different setups and it may be a case where the file is hidden and needs to be shown or they don’t allow access to it for some reason.

    Either way, it should be the least fuss route if you have a good host.
