Hi. I’m a basic web designer (NOT developer – databases are a complete loss to me!) but a complete WP novice – and I’ve inherited a WP site which I’ve back-engineered successfully and redesigned it to look and do what my client wanted it to do, all good. No problems.
Without going into a long story – essentially, this is a brand new WP site on a brand new hosted space (windows server from Easily.co.uk) and new domain (also via Easily).
All is good so far.
However, the new domain space it’s hosted on – and the domain names that are associated with and pointed to it – DOES NOT DISPLAY once the site loads, which means any subsequent copied and pasted page addresses are full of the user gobbledegook. Typing in the (2) domain addresses in a browser will go to it fine, but then the browser displays the WP generated usernumber url, which looks awful and is not great for passing on addresses for specific pages to others.
I’ve read about directory changes, url changes, sub-directory changes etc, but don’t see the specifics that are relevant to this site.
All I need to do is this:
1) When you type http://www.kidsncancer.org.uk – it goes to the site homepage. Good.
2) A click on any other page, even a refresh, reverts the url to http://user41534.vs.easily.co.uk/ . Bad.
This applies to all sub-pages from there onwards.
I would like it to stay as http://www.kidsncancer.org.uk/123xyzpage for all pages, all the time.
Also, the entire site is WP and is the only thing hosted on the webspace, so it’s all in the root directory and doesn’t need to be split into a sub directory or anything.
Anyone got the simplest of answers for me??
