Having trouble with "really pretty URL's" and Total Blog

Hi everyone,

I’ve set up really pretty URL’s and Total Blog before and it’s worked fine. I’m just having trouble with this new website.

Here’s the website: https://dadthings.ca

These are the instructions I followed: https://docs.joeworkman.net/rapidweaver/stacks/cms/total-cms-blog/really-pretty-urls

Here is the htaccess rule I used:

Pretty URL rules to paste into your .htaccess file

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule https://dadthings.ca/(\S+) https://dadthings.ca/post.php?permalink=$1

I suspect the problem is related to the fact that my blog is on the home page instead of a folder called /blog

Does anybody have any suggestions on how to fix it so the pretty URL works?

make sure it works without pretty urls first
set the pretty url option
preview the page in RW
a pop up window will apear and give you the opportunity to send changes to your server - do that
copy the .htaccess code that displays in the window as well and add that to your .htaccess file
