As you noticed I’m new at WP. Right now I’m working on my local server with a WP template (Using WAMP server) Am I going to have an issue with Permalink Settings when I upload the files or transfer them to the site server? Right now the Permalink Settings:

http://localhost/wordpress/?page_id=172

instead of:

http://localhost/wordpress/about

I have been trying to update the .htaccess but not luck. Any suggestions? Before continuing I don't want to spend more time adding pages knowing that the Permalinks won’t work. Is there a better way to re-name the links?

Sincerely Jim
