UPDATE 16.09.2009: I don’t update this script anymore, it might not work on newer versions of WordPress. An updated, more robust solution can be found at, go there if the solution below causes problems for your site.

I’ve been searching the web a bit for a way to make pretty permalinks work correctly on this site. The site is hosted on IIS so using mod_rewrite won’t work, and it’s on a shared server so the option of installing a mod_rewrite alternative for IIS won’t work either. I could get away with having almost pretty urls, with a index.php in them, like this: but I didn’t like it.

The Using Permalinks section on the WordPress page has a lot of info on this and it links to one solution that uses custom 404 pages to make this work but unfortunately I don’t think it’s a very good solution at all. What it does is parse the url from the 404 string, then re-implement all the rewrite url matching itself, make its own http request to the correct url, then write the data from that request into the response. It’s a good effort but it’s duplicating functionality already in WordPress and making a new http request for every page hit which I don’t like. After searching around some more I found another 404 page solution that is very simple and elegant. All you have to do is create a 404 page and put the following 4 lines in it:
