    Wordpress - SE friendly URIs - permalink problems. htaccess?

    Hi all,

    My website is currently flying pretty high in all the main search engines, for the relevant search phrases I wish to be found for, all thanks to wordpress I think

    However, only the pages that are directly linked from another site are showing up in the search engines.

    In theory it's pretty easy to switch on search engine friendly URIs in Wordpress, but I've found this just makes my site unavailable.

    Sorry if this is all a bit vague, maybe if someone could just help me frame the problem, then at least I can try and track down answers.

    Kind regards,

    Gary

    Hi Graft,

    I may well be teaching my Grandmother to suck eggs here ...

    but I found this link (well, the whole site infact!) very usefull: http://www.smart-it-consulting.com/article.htm?node=140

    I hope that helps! If it doesn't, do you prefer boiled, scrambled or poached?

    I think permalinks in WordPress would help you, what error messages do you get when you turn them on? (i.e., write the .htaccess file)?

    Thanks mlse,

    It may come to site maps etc, if I have no further luck with this

    Just to clarify:

    I'm attempting to use the permalink structure of:

    Code:
    /index.php/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/
    Which apparently doesn't require .htaccess/mod-rewrite.

    However, it doesn't want to work - I'm on an Apache server by the way.

    My error log is throwing this back at me.

    Code:
    [Mon Aug 14 13:41:50 2006] [error] [client 88.107.138.39] Options FollowSymLinks or SymLinksIfOwnerMatch is off which implies that RewriteRule directive is forbidden: /domains/g/a/garyhartney.com/public_html/wp-admin/options-permalink.php
    Hope someone can help

    Kind regards,

    Gary
