    How did you move the site? Did you follow?

    Yeah, as have followed the instructions - I did this the other day onto a tester server and it worked fine.

    Anyone else have any ideas?

    So, its not just the navigation thats not working - I dont have access to any of the pages - does this seem like a database issue?

    Did you update/change the file paths/URL's ?

    Do you mean in the database? I did it, but does it look like I have missed some of them?

    Just to explain the problem further - I have access to the other pages, here is one
    http://qualitymatters.ie/index.php/outcome-and-impact-measurement/?preview=true&preview_id=423&preview_nonce=0019fb2243

    While the URL should below (without the index.php). Does this sound like I need to the database again?

    Preview pages aren't viewable outside the dashboard. But when I click on a post on your home page - I get this:

    http://qualitymatters.ie/get_post%28%29

    That doesn't look right either.

    Just to rule out other things, have you tried resetting permalinks (change to default - see if that makes any difference), deactivating any plugins and switching to the default theme?

    Ok, I tried changing the permalinks to default which had improved the page URLs, http://qualitymatters.ie/?page_id=10. But unfortunately hasn't fixed the navigation.

    Just switched to defuult theme - and yes the navigation works on this. Do you know what I need to do to get the real theme working?

    I built it - it was based on the animimander of lynda.com. I have it working fine on a the tester site at http://www.melgardner.com/qmatters/

    Any ideas of what I have done wrong?

    Really no way to say from here. You do have some major mark-up error problems - don't know if they are causing the problems:

    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.melgardner.com%2Fqmatters%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

    Hi I have had a look at the validator and the error I am getting is Saw

    <?. Probable cause: Attempt to use an XML processing instruction in HTML. (XML processing instructions are not supported in HTML.)
    <?wp_nav_menu(array('menu'=>'Header Menu'));?>

    or at this link http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fqualitymatters.ie&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&ss=1&group=0&st=1&user-agent=W3C_Validator%2F1.3+http%3A%2F%2Fvalidator.w3.org%2Fservices

    Does anyone know how I need to change the code to fix it?
