Why Dont My Links Work? (8 posts)

    Hello, i am rather new so im sorry if this is a silly question however this is my problem.

    I have a wp website with its own domain name, rather than have 50 pages each relevant to a differant county i decided to set up sub domains for each area for example:


    in each sub domain i have added a landing page rich with information specifically for that county, i had intended to link the "about us" "prices" etc etc to my main domain however the links will not work. the message i get is this;

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@sheerness.blarblar.co.uk and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    I am really confused and have tried very hard to find a suitable and easy to understand solution but have failed. I would greatly appreciate any help anyone could offer me at this point.

    Kind Regards

    Without a link to the actual sites, it's hard to diagnose, but check to make sure the pages you're linking to actually exist, and that the link to them is correct. Without actually being able to see the sites there's no really telling what the issue is.

    Hi ok thank you,

    My sub domain is sheerness.kineticdrivingschool.co.uk

    i want to link the "prices" tab at this sub domain to the prices page on the domain http://www.kineticdrivingschool.co.uk

    Is this enough information?

    Yup, your link on sheerness.kineticdrivingschool.co.uk is pointing to...


    which I am guessing doesn't exist, so you have to change that link to

    i know this sounds odd but i thought if i added a totally differant url to the link it may work, i tried tiny url and added that and some reason that now works???

    I just went back to your site and the Prices link is now pointing to http://sheerness.kineticdrivingschool.co.uk/, so I can't experience the error you're experiencing to diagnose it.

    Refreshed your page and all of your links are pointing to http://sheerness... instead of to the main site you're wanting them to point to.
