[resolved] Help - the links on my navbar go to a different page (5 posts)

    I can't figure this out. It's happening in both Mozilla and IE.
    Clicking on a link in the navbar goes to a different page on the site.
    This is happening on both the main navbar and the subnavbar, and the dropdowns.

    Site is http://lindarowley.com.au if someone can have a look and see why this is occurring??

    Appreciate any advice, thanks.

    Uh? I don't follow. It all looks fine to me.

    This is still happening, although not all the time.
    Different links, not always the same ones.

    When it does happen, 2 things occur :
    1. the URL in the browser displays the correct URL.
    2. the page being displayed is a different page, and this can be any page in the site, usually one that has already been clicked.

    I noticed this initially when clicking on a dropdown link on top of the submenu - the submenu page would appear, not the dropdown.
    That doesn't happen anymore though.

    Maybe this is a permalink/htaccess problem?
    The permalinks are set to custom > /%postname%/

    Here is the htaccess :

    # BEGIN WordPress
    
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    
    # END WordPress

    This site was set up in 2.8.6, then updated to 2.9 - which did not fix the problem.

    Can anyone throw any light on this?

    Thanks

    I have resolved this issue, so if anyone has the same problem, try this.

    It was nothing to do with the site itself. I replicated it on a different server, and it worked fine. So I got my hosting company to move the account into a different server - it took a while to convince them that this was the problem, but they did it eventually.
