real page names
How does one go from website.com/?p=1 to website.com/meaningful-page-name/

I have a few questions, which i'll post in different threads to keep things organized. (I just donated, your theme is changing my life! more donations coming in the future)....

See Site Admin -> Settings -> Permalinks

Thank you for the donation.

Looks like the permalinks aren't working yet because your .htaccess file is not writable. Here's what you can do:

In a text editor, open a new file and paste the following text into it:


# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
# END WordPress

Save the file as .htaccess (note the dot at the beginning), and upload it to the root directory of your WordPress installation on your web hosting account, should be something like /public_html/your-domain.com/
(May look different on your web hosting account)

Note: This file goes into the root directory of your WordPress installation, not into the Atahualpa theme directory.

You know that you're in the WordPress root directory when you see files such as wp-app.php, wp-atom.php, wp-blog-header.php etc... Upload the .htaccess file into the same directory where these files are.

you anticipated my next question, thanks.

I have a couple other questions, should I make new threads or just post here?

Make new threads please so others with the same question can find them
