[resolved] Transferred domains, no pages showing? (6 posts)

    Okay, I followed Podz's tutorial on moving a wp site from one domain to another. http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/move/

    I also followed the database restoration tutorial: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/restore/

    Original site: http://www.hvfd-218.com/
    New site: http://www.hagamanfire.com/

    Two separate domains, two separate databases.
    Everything went fine, except for when you try to go to a page in the new site, such as http://www.hagamanfire.com/fire-trucks-apparatus/ I'm getting an "Oops! Page not found" message.

    I did check in the wp_options table that everything be set properly, and I tried going to that page from the link in the sidebar "Fire Trucks & Apparatus" (however, regardless of the page you try going to from that list, this is what happens.)

    Any ideas?

    Rebuild permalinks on the new install?

    Actually, what happens if you set it to default/ugly permalinks?

    yay! that worked...
    now, i wonder why the image in the left sidebar isn't working on the new site? (i checked, it's in the theme folder where it should be...)

    Background image is http://www.hvfd-218.com/wp-content/themes/adsense_ready/images/fire.jpg ?

    Url is fine at least...

    yeah - I haven't deleted the old site yet, maybe I should go in and change the URL for the image so that it points to the new site... brb

    edit: works now that i changed the URL!

    THANKS HS FOR YOUR HELP! I started to panic a little! :)
