Can anyone tell me the best way to attach wood porch posts to the concrete floor? TIA -

Cool

I'm no pro, but there are post base brackets made of aluminum (and galvanized) that have a hole in the center for an anchor bolt, and they hold the post up off the concrete to keep it from wicking up water.
Drill an expandable lead anchor hole in the concrete with a masonry bit, and bolt the base into the anchor.
Set the porch post into the bracket, screw it to the sides, and Viola!
Good Luck!
Mike
