About and Archive links not working? (3 posts)

    just did install and when i go to my blog the "About" and "Archive" links both go to "404 Not found" page

    the About link points to "domain.com/about" but the URL in the dashboard under the Manage / Pages section had the About section pointing to "domain.com/?page_id=2"?

    i don't know even how to begin working thru the various files in my server directory to figure out how to fix these basic links?

    These appear to be hard-coded links in the theme you are using, which means you would have to edit the template they reside in (likely header.php for the Cutline theme) to provide the correct urls.

    ok, the Archives link in both the header that goes to "*.com/blog/archives" points to a template in my blog but the archives don't appear, instead some "Easy, tiger. This is a 404 page." message appears in the body of the page?

    i also get this page when i click on "Sitemap" in the footer?

    i don't know enough about editing PHP or even how the files interrelate to know how to get these links to point to what they are supposed to point to?
