Nested Pages and permalinks (3 posts)

    If I already have existing pages on my site, how do I use the nested pages feature?

    When you make a page a child, it gets a new permalink assigned to it and at least in my experience, it screws everything up.

    I took four existing pages, and made one a parent and the other three child pages. The pages are intralinked as well. After making the pages child pages neither the old, or newly assinged permalinks worked. What can I do?

    In summary: If I have had pages on my site for a long time can I turn around and nest them or do I have to do that while I am creating the pages for it to work?

    Does that make sense? Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks,

    Steve

    You should be able to create new page parent and child relationships. There might be something wrong on your server. Possibly a rewrite issue. Do you know if your mod_rewrite is enabled in your php.ini file? What does your htaccess file look like? What host are you on?

    This is my first venture into any sort of website creation, and honestly I don't know how to answer your questions. What I can tell you is that my site is on godaddy right now. I will soon change that because from what I can see their servers are super slow most of the time. Maybe I should call them and see what they say.

    Thanks for your help
