Despite multiple pages created, tabs all go to main blog page (4 posts)

    I can't seem to work this one out on my own, so I'm hoping the experts will smile upon my WP question...

    Location: http://www.statismwatch.ca
    Problem: Cannot navigate away from front page of blog.

    Details: First noted the problem after setting up two Pages to create tabs at the top of my blog for Home and a Forum. Clicking on either Home or Forum result in the main page reloading. Additionally, clicking any tags or categories has the same result. The blog stays stuck stubbornly on the main page. I have swapped in three different themes and three different forum plugins, so I'm fairly certain that the solution doesn't lie in that direction.

    updated religiously with each attempted change ;)

    id 37 title Forum slug forum pageparent mainpage pagetemplate default pageorder 1
    simple-forum manage options (just in case)
    forum page id: 37
    forum page slug: forum

    I thought I'd covered all the bases, so - HALP! Thx.

    Todd, I'm having the same problem with http://www.pop-damage.com/mrnovember/

    Were you ever able to resolve this?

    No, you don't have the same problem, because you have a different WP version.

    Review your permalinks: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks

    I haven't done anything with the permalinks... WordPress generated them for me. Right now, my "About" page has the following permalink:


    What's wrong with that? And why does it lead to my main page? The only part of that link that I can change is the "about" part. What should I change it to?
