I’m building my first ever WordPress site. I can publish my home page (http://www.authormartinroth.com/) but none of the other pages will display.
For example, I have tried to publish an About page (http://www.authormartinroth.com/about-martin-roth/) but get an “HTTP Error 404.0 – Not Found” message. It says the requested URL is http://www.authormartinroth.com:80/about-martin-roth/.
Can someone please tell me what I’m doing wrong?
For starters it looks like you are using a Windows server instead of a Linux box.
WordPress can work on a Windows server. But unless you really know what you’re doing, it’s going to be frustrating at best. Here is the Codex entry that might help: http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_on_Microsoft_IIS Step 5 about how to enable pretty URLs in particular is worth reviewing.
My suggestion since you are just getting started is to switch to Linux hosting. It will save you tons of heartache and grief.
Did you create the post and then edit the date, time or title? Go to Settings > Permalinks and change the permalinks and then check again.
Thank you for the guidance. Thanks to Anita’s suggestions I went through all the permalinks, and though everything looked okay I made some changes, and now everything I publish is displaying correctly.
Thank you again.
