    I can’t figure this out. It’s happening in both Mozilla and IE.
    Clicking on a link in the navbar goes to a different page on the site.
    This is happening on both the main navbar and the subnavbar, and the dropdowns.

    Site is http://lindarowley.com.au if someone can have a look and see why this is occurring??

    Appreciate any advice, thanks.

    Clicking on a link in the navbar goes to a different page on the site.

    Uh? I don’t follow. It all looks fine to me.

    It now works OK on my computer too! What the??
    Thanks for looking, I’ll be back if it does it again.

    This is still happening, although not all the time.
    Different links, not always the same ones.

    When it does happen, 2 things occur :
    1. the URL in the browser displays the correct URL.
    2. the page being displayed is a different page, and this can be any page in the site, usually one that has already been clicked.

    I noticed this initially when clicking on a dropdown link on top of the submenu – the submenu page would appear, not the dropdown.
    That doesn’t happen anymore though.

    Maybe this is a permalink/htaccess problem?
    The permalinks are set to custom > /%postname%/

    Here is the htaccess :

    # BEGIN WordPress
    
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    
    # END WordPress

    This site was set up in 2.8.6, then updated to 2.9 – which did not fix the problem.

    Can anyone throw any light on this?

    Thanks

    I have resolved this issue, so if anyone has the same problem, try this.

    It was nothing to do with the site itself. I replicated it on a different server, and it worked fine. So I got my hosting company to move the account into a different server – it took a while to convince them that this was the problem, but they did it eventually.
