Important information

Blog B DOES contain a few posts in the ‘b2evolution Tips’ category. All these entries are designed to help you so, as EdB would say: “read them all before you start hacking away!” 😉 If you wish, you can delete these posts one by one after you have read them.

b2evolution uses old-style permalinks and feedback links by default. This is to ensure maximum compatibility with various webserver configurations.
