To be honest, I’ve fulfilled my needs using wordpress. I can add and edit blogs and show them at a custom homepage. But all the other features aren’t working and I’d like to try them out.
All my links don’t go to a page, they do to the root directory where I placed wordpress. My URL’s all say http:…root/?variable=number as opposed to root/some page?variable=number. I’m I just way off base here?
So, my main issue hasn’t been resolved. When I say my links don’t work, I mean they’re not functioning. A category is supposed to bring up all the post listed under it right? Well, I don’t get that. The URL looks fine and I can add posts and even edit them but for some reason, category links don’t produce anything besides a view of the root directory.
