Created a ‘Welcome’ page for http://www.sweetgrass-baskets.com/ (permalink shows http://www.sweetgrass-baskets.com/). Went to Dashboard/Settings/Reading and made ‘Welcome’ the static ‘Front Page:’ w ‘Articles’ as the ‘Posts Page:’ However, when I try to view the ‘Welcome’ page, instead of going to http://www.sweetgrass-baskets.com/, the site comes back w http://www.sweetgrass-baskets.com/southwest-baskets/ w a ‘Error 404 – Not Found’ msg.
Note: Had previously created a southwest-baskets page in error; should have been an article. Subsequently, went back and deleted southwest-baskets, and created a southwest-baskets page.
Under Settings/General, http://www.sweetgrass-baskets.com/ is shown both in the WordPress address and the Site address. Permalink settings set to default. Tried the other permalink options and they displayed display the southwest-baskets article.
Went through all the other WP settings, but could find no redirects. Tried clearing recent history, but that had no effect.
Everything was working fine up until recently, but don’t know what happened to cause this problem. Any ideas as to what to do next?
