"Older Posts" 404 error (11 posts)

    Hi all
    My "Older posts" link goes to the wrong location. I've read loads of support posts which say about resetting permalinks and deleting your .htaccess file, but none of this works for me.

    The problem is that the "Older posts" links to:
    /wordpress/wordpress/?paged=2

    But it should link to:
    /wordpress/?paged=2

    What have I done? :)

    What permalink structure are you using? Can you post a link to the site?

    Just the default one.

    Here's the faulty page.

    Just found this article whereby the poster has exactly the same issue - namely the link duplicates a director in the path.

    I can't see any "Older Posts" link on that page.

    I can't see any "Older Posts" link on that page.

    Scroll to the very end of the WordPress area, it's the last thing on the page.

    I did... and I still can't see anything.

    You're kidding - another problem to solve :(

    You should be seeing this. I've just checked it on Mac and PC (Firefox and IE) but I can see "Older posts" at the end of the page on every browser.

    Can you tell me what browser you're using and the last article you can see that WordPress page.

    Cheers

    Nope - definitely not seeing it. I'm looking at a single post called "I see dead people" and I'm using Firefox 13 on Win 7. I'd suggest starting by sorting out the markup errors. Then move onto the CSS errors.

    Thanks. Ok. I'll look into those.

    In the meantime here is the WordPress section in isolation.

    Your older page link is pointing to http://sirius.servers.eqx.misp.co.uk/~graphicp/wordpress/wordpress/?paged=2 In other words, a completely different url. Where - exactly - did you install WordPress? And what urls did you enter when you installed it?
