[resolved] URL in text widget not functioning (5 posts)

    I added a text widget to my sidebar that contains a link to one of my posts. While the HTML code for the link is correct, the hyperlink doesn't work.
    Link= http://thomascwaters.com/?p=1157

    But goes to http://thomascwaters.com only. Is the "?" causing the issue? How do I work around this? To see the bload/ text as it is displayed http://thomascwaters.com

    http://thomascwaters.com/?p=1157
    works for me and goes to the page

    the url is without pretty permalinks which is why the ? - that's normal

    if you would like to modify how the url's look you can

    you access your permalinks in wordpress admin
    settings - permalinks

    Did it"work for you" simply following the link, or following it from the widget as displayed on my homepage? The link id fine, and works for me too. but it fails when I hit it from the widget displaying it on my homepage.

    Looks like the links in your text widgets are malformed.
