New site in test subfolder loads live site pages

Recommended Posts


Hi hope you are well.

I am busy redoing a site for a client and we are basically keeping the same structure, so same page names, categories etc.

I just quickly creating all the pages and the nav's and I clicked on a nav item in the "redesign" folder and when it loads, it loads the same page in the "root" folder.

This is really unexpected – do you know why that is and how I can stop that from happening?

As always, I really appreciate your advice.

Thanks, have a great day.

AAAAHHHH, i have worked it out.


The problem was the url in the settings tab didn't have a "/" at the end.








By adding the "/" is stopped it going up one level to the root.






keithmagvacom, i didn't clone the site -i built it page by page to make sure there were no orphan pages or files in the site.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
