Character rig problem


:banghead: I just cant seem to figure out what is going wrong with my rig. I have read from lost of different places and i cant seem to find any explination to my problem, so i thought i would ask here. Ok i feel stupid about asking this but hear goes, how do you get the hips of your character rig to be able to move around while the feet stay locked down as well as have the hips locked in place and being able to move the feet with IK?

do you have ik on the legs?


Yes :thumbsup: and i can move them fine but not the hip?

Btw, here is a pretty good setup:
