"You should update your .htaccess now" on 1.5.1 (8 posts)

    Hello,

    I just upgrade my WPMu 1.3 install to 1.5.1. All of the pages of my main blog are now listed as posts. When I go to update my permalink structure, there doesn't seem to be an 'update' option in the 1.5.1 Customize Permalink Structure panel. I tried changing the setting to what I think it should be and I got the message.

    You should update your .htaccess now.

    Could someone please clue me in to what I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks much

    I just make my .htaccess file writable and no longer getting the "You should update your .htaccess now" message, but all of my static pages are still all posts.

    I appreciate any help at all.

    Oh, I remember this one. It's something that happened back in regualr WP that they changed. I had to do this on my personal blog when I upgraded it, and I was not too impressed.

    You pretty much have to go find them in the database and change them back to pages.

    Thanks, andrea_r. Yes, after looking at it for a while, I don't think it was the WPMu upgrade that did it, but the blog upgrade. So I just went back and changed the posts back to pages manually. I'm just thankful that happened ONLY the main blog and none of the other ones....as far as I know.

    Thanks.

    Does anyone know how to utilize .htaccess, or anything for that matter, to automatically set permalinks on new blogs?

    is hello21 spamming?

    otherwise there are 2 plugins that I am aware of that allow you to set some defaults for new blogs, including permalink structure, go have a look at wpmu.org and wpmudev.org

    Probably. We've been hit with a fair amount of manual spam recently where older threads are found and a "sort of on topic" post is placed.

    chmod your .htaccess to 777
