    Hi, i create a autoblog. hxxp://thebestseo.info
    I am noob, that's why i need so many days to create this blog. I don't have good knowledge about php, hosting and wordpress. I learn those thing myself. Now i get my success. That's why i am very happy!
    But, i can't solve some problem. See my post link, they are in default mode. They show only number, like this one- hxxp://thebestseo.info/?p=23
    After my domain show some number (p=23), i try to change this in my wp Permalink settings option. But, when i try this i get a message, "You should update your .htaccess now." But, i can't find the ".htaccess" file in my file manager or in my FTP account. Please tell me what i do? Is their any easy way to solve this problem?

    My another problem is, i setup this wp autoblog in my hosting with the fantastico option, and i do this with successfully. But, now want to setup another wp in same hosting. how i do this? I add a addon domain in the hosting, but, it shows "addon domain" and "subdomain" both, why? Then i setup wp in the addon domain, but when i type the addon domain in my browser it shows nothing, but when i type the subdomain it shows. Please help me to solve this problem. Thanks in advance!

    (I am very sorry for my bad english.)

    Where are you hosting ? a free host usually won't allow you to use multiple domain names on 1 account. And the htaccess is hidden through ftp it might show up in the file manager.

    Some hosts "hide" the .htaccess file. You should make one and upload it to the root of your site. Then the rewriting should work.

    The best way to do that is to install WP locally on your machine, then copy that .htaccess file it creates.

    In windows, you probably won't be able to save file .htaccess so save it in htaccess.txt and then trasfer it to your host and rename it to .htaccess

    as for your domain, it's probably not propagated yet. So give it some time.

    Yes, the easiest way to make a .htaccess file is in notepad. Just open a new file. Type whatever they are telling you type and save it as .htaccess MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE THE "." before htaccess. Then just upload it to the blog's root directory.

    For your second question, choose the domain you would like your blog setup in (NOT the sub domain). Then you'/ll have to go into the general settings on wp-admin screen and change it to the proper domian.

    Hi Rehan,
    Just a note, you are stealing contents from other sites and used WP spinner but you forget to spin the titles as well so just try rewrite heading as well ;)
