    Hello. Simple question hopefully. How do I know what my WordPress page name is? I am in the admin Dashboard, looking at the page I just created under pages > manage pages….but I need to know what the page url is so I can link to it from a separate site. I guess it should be something.php?

  • I am in the admin Dashboard, looking at the page I just created

    Maybe the easiest and quickest method would be for you to visit your site, click on the page you just created, and then look in the browsers address bar.

    Unfortunately, it takes me to mydomain/index.html which is a flash intro page. I am trying to code the flash page page to redirect to the wordpress page, but can not figure out what to put for its url…
    I can’t even seem to view my wordpress page anymore, it redirects to index.html. What a mess..

    If you go under Manage -> Pages, and select the page you want to know about, it will open the editor for that page. At the top of the editing box, you should see the URL for the page…

    Here are my first few lines at the top of the editing box, the html section. Am I missing something? (Thanks everyone for taking the time to help me, I`m so frustrated with this…)

    <!–[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:WordDocument> <w:View>Normal</w:View> <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom> <w:TrackMoves /> <w:TrackFormatting /> <w:PunctuationKerning /> <w:ValidateAgainstSchemas /> <w:SaveIfXMLInvalid>false</w:SaveIfXMLInvalid> <w:IgnoreMixedContent>false</w:IgnoreMixedContent> <w:AlwaysShowPlaceholderText>false</w:AlwaysShowPlaceholderText> <w:DoNotPromoteQF /> <w:LidThemeOther>EN-CA</w:LidThemeOther> <w:LidThemeAsian>X-NONE</w:LidThemeAsian> <w:LidThemeComplexScript>X-NONE</w:LidThemeComplexScript> <w:Compatibility> <w:BreakWrappedTables /> <w:SnapToGridInCell /> <w:WrapTextWithPunct />

    Sheesh…sorry for the backticks

    As StrangeAttractor has indicated;

    Dashboard > Pages > Edit > roll over the name of the page you want the link for and click Edit. Directly under the page title it says “permalink”. That is the URL.

    Sorry guys…maybe its because Im using version 2.6? I just dont seepermalink` or URL anywhere there…

    I use 2.6.5 and get the link above the editor, but I’ve also customized my dashboard theme a bit, so I forget what the right-out-of-the-box installation looks like.

    But another way is to use the Preview button while editing the post (if it has already been published). If you right click on that, you can copy the link from the context menu on your browser. Or just click on the Preview button normally (left-click) and it will take you to the page, and then you’ll be able to see what the URL is.

    Even my preview button takes me to the root of my domain, which is the flash intro page 🙁
    I was talking to my hosting company`s tech support earlier tonight and he made some changes. Something must be wrong because I cant see my wordpress page at all…everything links to the flash intro page….
    I guess I am going to have to call them back tomorrow and figure out what is going on.

    Thanks for all your help and quick replies 🙂

    Okay. Try this. In your browser, type //

    You say have an index.html for your flash page, ( presumably placed in the same directory you installed WordPress in ) and WordPress needs to load index.php. So try typing in the .php extension and see if you can view your blog.

    HEY!!! That worked!! I may have to propose to you in a moment….Thank you SO much! Both of you, I appreciate all your help!!

    Phew!!! (dabs the sweat from your brow), That was a close one!

    You’re welcome!
