Buttons and Links on page not redirecting to localhost. (2 posts)

    Hi All, I am new to WordPress and had quite a time getting it installed and working, but I did. I recently moved a server hosted site for a business I am helping over to a personal machine set up for localhost/. I have apache, mysql, filezilla, myphpadmin and wordpress all installed / running and the site is viewable through the localhost. I have made changes to the site and everything seems to work ok. It took me several weeks off and on to get most of the kinks worked out, but there is one thing I don't understand. When I click on a link, (menu button or whatever), it tries to redirect the webpage to the actual site name, say, http://www.mysite.com/sponsors.... instead of localhost/wordpress/ where everything is located. I have changed everything I know how to change in both the wp-config.php, apache's httpd.conf, the sql database entries in wp-options like site-url and home and it still does not redirect to the proper page. These should not be external links to another site. There are some of those, but the ones I am clicking on should take me to another part of the business' website. Any suggestions?
