I am not running multi-blog but single-blog, therefore I prefer short URLs like this:
http://example.com/my-post

than like these:
http://example.com/index.php/my-post
http://example.com/index.php/blog/my-post

I was referring to this thread:http://forums.b2evolution.net/viewtopic.php?t=17482&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=

I believe that we should have the ability to remove "index.php" as a main feature rather than hacking the .htaccess

Btw, how come the forum textarea and button border is unsually thicker than other BBforum?

You have to use .htaccess to "tell" your server that you want to get rid of index.php in URLs, there's no way to do it without editing server config files or .htaccess file.

I know, how about the ability to edit .htaccess in the backoffice?

That will be dangerous for non-techies like you and me ;) And we all know how a small, minor, easily missed error or typo can lead to pulling-hairs out :p

Additionally, there are still hosts that do not allow editing of .htaccess or doesn't allow it all, reason as always "security" and "shared hosting".

Besides, you usually only need to edit your .htaccess once ;)
