    Wordpress Permalinks and Windows Server 2003

    Hey guys,

    Do you know if it's possible to configure permalinks in Wordpress to display the title of the post rather than ?p=n if you are running Wordpress on Windows Server 2003?

    I can't seem to get it to work.

    Cheers,
    Cheers,
    Ian.

    sorry to bring up an old thread, but I was searching because I been having the same problem.

    Is there a way to get the post name in the permalink if you are using a windows server?

    Can you install software on the server?

    If you can, then you should consider ISAPI.

    I think you mean ISAPI rewrite, not ISAPI in and of itself.

    What you want to do is called url rewriting, and it is perfectly possible on IIS, but you are probably going to need root access to the server. See this blog post for some hints.

    Does the built in rewriting not work?
