Support » Localhost Installs » Ups! Page not found

  • I’m new to WordPress and the site was going great, but I had to find a plugin to add anchor links from the top menu to a page in the landing page (which I’m still not able to do, so if you know any solution, please let me know). I installed a plugin to edit the pages permalink, to remove the parent-page “url” and the website bugged and shows a page not found error. I uninstalled the plugin, deleted the pages and re-added them and still this error appears. Anyone knows how to fix this? Thanks

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Hello @adrianaerio,

    I’m sorry to hear your having some issues with permalinks! They can be tricky sometimes.

    If you haven’t already, I’d encourage you to read this article about Using Permalinks.

    I’m guessing you may have already done the .htaccess part. A lot of times when permalinks mess up it’s best to change your Permalink structure to plain, save it, and then go back to pretty permalinks.

    In relation to the anchor situation
    Here’s a couple quick articles I found talking about anchors within WordPress posts or pages:
    http://wpfaq.org/site/anchors/
    http://www.wendycholbi.com/anchor-links-jump-links/

    To briefly overview for whatever you’re looking to create an anchor to, you’ll wrap in an <a> tag with the value of name. So for example:
    <a name="myanchorname>This is the text I'd like to link to</a>

    To reference that link within the same post you can just use #myanchorname as the URL when creating another link
    To reference that link in a separate page you would use https://example.com/yourpage#myanchorname

    Hope this helps!
    -Kevin
