Try Editing a Page, but Nothing Updates (2 posts)

    Hello,

    I posted about this yesterday, but I have found out some new details about my issue.

    I am fairly new to WordPress and wouldn't consider myself an expert in HTML/CSS either. I am editing a site that was already created by another designer, mostly in WordPress and seems to also be done in HTML and CSS as well.

    The site is: http://www.executivetravellink.com/

    Basically, the previous designer apparently created pages for all of the pages under the Brands menu. However, when I try to add any graphics or content to them, nothing shows up. In particular, when I try to edit the Hotel Brands page in WordPress, all you see is the first paragraph and not the "Club Med" title or anything below that. I am assuming that a separate HTML page was created and linked to it, but the question is what is the path to it?

    I have access to their FTP and have found where all of the files are located. I notice that all of the Brands pages are supposed to be located in a "brands" folder as the path is (brands/airline-brands) for example, but there is no "brands" folder in the group of FTP folders and files.

    I don't know if it's possible to actually find where these files were created just by looking in the source code. Any help that anyone could give would be much much appreciated as I'm completely lost here. Thank You!

    WordPress does not use sub-folders and it doesn't create files for pages. All of the site's content is stored in the database. I strongly recommend that you start learning about theme hierarchy and review Theme_Development. It also possible that the theme makes use of custom taxonomies.
