changing permalinks settings deletes all content in htaccess
|Reported by:||k0rp0rate||Owned by:||ryan|
If you go to Settings -> Permalinks, and change from 'custom structure' to 'default', WordPress completely deletes the content in the .htacces file, not only the content between # BEGIN WordPress and # END WordPress.
So if you have anything added by a plugin or manually by you below the # END WordPress outside of the WordPress added rules, ALL is deleted too.
You lost ALL .htaccess content :(
This's happening with 2.8.5 (not in version list to choose, sorry), I'm pretty sure of not having this problem in earlier versions.
