Question about Pages (5 posts)

    I'm trying to create a page that uses the contact form plugin to give visitors a way to contact me.

    Two problems:

    1. Using the admin menus, I created a page, but when I click "View" under Manage--Pages, I get a 404 Not Found error.

    2. Once the page is created, how do I link to it?

    thanks for your help.

    Are you using permalinks? Update your permalinks by clicking the update button in Options->Permalinks.

    Is .htaccess writeable? Make it writeable if it's not (and then update your permalinks again); WordPress needs to write to it every time a Page is written.

    You can automatically create a list of links to your Pages with this Template Tag: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_list_pages

    Most Themes have this tag as part of their templates already.

    You can manually link to a page, of course, by just knowing it's URL: http://www.example.com/page-name

    A good reference about Pages: http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages

    By changing the permissions on .htaccess to 666, I was able to create a page: http://www.tatteredcoat.com/contact-me/

    However, I have a question--how do I get rid of the "Edit This" link? I would have thought that it would appear in the template for the page, which I assume is page.php in wp-content/themes/default/ , but I can't find the code there. (I set up the page using the "default template")

    What am I missing?

    thanks for the help.

    No one else can see it - only people with a high enough user lever (likely only you) that are logged in will see the link.

    It should be where you desribe it. Are you generating that form with a plugin, or did you code it up yourself?

    If it's a plugin it might be overriding your 'Defaul Template' settings. If that's the casse you might be able to figure out what template it's using and edit that. You're looking for a reference to edit_post_link().
