[resolved] Pretty Permalinks not redirecting properly (2 posts)

    My website is set up to be a pretty simple. New post updates the front page, and is added onto the blog list page. Clicking a blog from the homepage or blog list page takes you to that blog on single.php

    I created some new php files, gave them their template names, added a new page and linked it up with the correct template name.

    However my wordpress is installed to a subdomain called "blog". Like this:


    My website is: http://www.elliothesp.co.uk

    However: the page in WordPress called Contact sends the URL to here http://elliothesp.co.uk/contact-page when the location of the file is actually http://blog.elliothesp.co.uk/contact-page

    The issue seems to be that when a new page is made, WordPress creates it and only assigns it the URL elliothesp.co.uk/pagename instead of blog.elliothesp.co.uk/pagename

    Anyone have any ideas?

    NB: When I update the permalinks it tells me the htaccess file isnt writable, which it is, and it has the correct text in it - ive tripple checked.

    with right permission, WordPress either creates/amends the .htaccess file for you or provides you with the correct block of code to manually add to your .htaccess file.
