Boxes links show 404

Question

Posted · Report post

Hi everybody!

 

I'm using platform basic theme and guess this is really silly but haven't figured it out so far.

 

Boxes images and titles are in www.site.com/page/ linking to www.site.com/page/www.site.com/post/ instead of www.site.com/post/

 

Does anybody know what i am doing wrong?

Hi,

 

This is a common error made by incorrectly adding a link as www.mysite.com instead of http://www.mysite.com.

 

When adding any links in our settings - or those of WordPress, please use the full URL unless otherwise specified, rather than a shortened link. This insures that links are correct.  To fix this, edit each box and correct the links.  When finished, go to Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks.  Do not change anything - this is very important. Just save the settings.  It will update all the links (but does not correct them).

 

In future, instead of using our pastebin for a link, please use one of the link masking services such as http://www.tiny.cc to hide your site's URL in our forum.

Hi there, thanks for your reply. You may find the url on pastebin here.

 

Boxes are on homepage. You will notice that images and titles link to www.site.com/www.site.com/box and how box subtitle and text (manually set) correctly link to www.site.com/box

Hi, thanks a lot, it is now working perfectly fine after doing what you said.

 

I'll use the masking services you talk about next time.

 

Thanks again!
