    I have 2 blogs - one uses 2.9.1 and the other 2.9.2.

    With the 2.9.2 version which has just been manually installed, I cannot seem to change page urls/permalinks of pages from the ugly http://site.com/?page_id=1 to something like http://site.com/about.html .. . i think it might be something to do with htaccess - i dont have a htaccess file, nor much knowledge about that sort of thing :S

    on a diff wp blog i use, which uses version 2.9.1 - i can literally just change the permalink by clicking Edit right under the page title when i create a page or edit and existing one, but with this blog using 2.9.2 i cant.. again i think it may be to do with file permissions, but not sure! any ideas?

    I disabled all plugins on both to see if it made a difference, and it doesnt.. my blog is at www.ziggiville.co.uk

    Really confused, can anyone help? :S

    It sounds like you may have messed something up during the upgrade. htaccess is necessary for url rewriting to work. If you're missing yours, wordpress probably detects that it's not there and ignores your URL aliases. I suggest you download a fresh install of 2.9.2, unzip it, grab the htaccess file and drop that in your web root. See if that fixes it. ;-)
