Support » Plugin: Permalink Manager Lite » Misleading link in WordPress theme source code

  • In this code from a Genesis theme the http:// reference is wrong, and I seem to have no way of finding my About Page OUTSIDE of WordPress.
    <li id=”menu-item-93″ class=”menu-item menu-item-type-post_type menu-item-object-page menu-item-93″><span itemprop=”name”>About</span></l …

    There is no /about/ folder inside the /wordpress_new/ folder. My About page is buried somewhere inside the theme folder; but I cannot see it anywhere there either. It is hidden — from my eyes anyway.

    It looks like the only way to edit text in my About Page is to do that from the WordPress Admin dashboard. So, it seems, I cannot use Dreamweaver to tweak code on my WordPress page ; because thew page I want to edit in Dreamweaver is hidden. Is that right?

    Sorry .. the printed message above is not showing the “http …” reference. Anyway it includes /wordpress_new/about/. There is no folder named “about” inside /wordpress_new/ or even inside the theme folder.

    Hi @theordore,

    I am not certain if I understand you correctly. WordPress rewrites display the raw URLs, eg.:
    https://website.com/index.php?page=about

    to “pretty permalinks”, eg.
    https://website.com/about

    The pages, posts or any other content that you create with WordPress is not hosted/saved in WordPress directory, that is why you cannot find it on your server and you will not be able to edit WordPress pages with Dreamweaver. It is not caused by my plugin, that one of the main functionalities of WordPress.

    Here you can find more info on how “pretty permalinkw” work like:

    The WordPress directory contains:

    • WordPress core files
    • wp-config.php file
    • theme files
    • attachments/uploads (eg. images)
    • plugin files

    MySQL database contains:

    • posts, pages content
    • categories, tags and terms content
    • theme, plugin & site options

    Best regards,
    Maciej
