I posted this up yesterday and haven't received any suggestions for help so I am trying again. I'm very worried about the broken links and I am completely stuck for solutions.
The site gets a fair amount of traffic during the week and I'm schedule to do another mass mailing in the next couple of days which always drives up more visitors. It's quite important I find a way of resolving this as quickly as possible.
If you aren't able to help, please can you suggest alternative forums where people might be able to assist.
This is what I posted up yesterday: I've marked it resolved and am trying again here.
I think I've broken my permalinks. I would really appreciate some help. This is a link to the blog: http://www.sokwanele.com/thisiszimbabwe
This is what I did:
I tried to create a page titled 'Archives'. This is turn generated a link to the page as follows:
I had FORGOTTEN that the custom permalink structure for the site was already set to be :
I then deleted the page I created called 'archives', but the permalinks for all the pages are still going to the Error 404 page.
I've tried updating the permalinks under options and it doesn't do anything.
It's as if each link is now looking for a page that doesn't exist? Which is odd, because that page didn't ever exist before today and the permalinks worked fine.
Have I created a database conflict somewhere? How do I resolve this?
I would very much appreciate some assistance.
