Do You Test Your Links And Banners? Did I Get A Shock Tonight!
A fellow member who I'm PMing with to help him out went to look at my website, and happened to click on my text link on a post, that lead to the main concentrated page for shopping.
That link did NOT lead there, but to another post that didn't have the option to shop!
It turns out that all the text links ended up being wrong, leading to the wrong post and not the proper page. This was NOT like that at all when I added them.
I had to go into edit for each page and post for the women's line, highlighted the link, clicked on edit there and replaced ALL 15 of them. The men's links were fine, leading to the men's concentrated page.
For some reason...
'Women's Purses and Handbags' PAGE
got changed too ..
'Purses and Handbags'
'Welcome to Women's and Men's Bags' POST?
Purses and handbags is NOT in 'Welcome to Women's and Men's Bags'.
I don't even have a URL ending with 'purses and handbags'. I don't understand what happened! that it lead to the one I just mentioned. 'women's and men's' is not the same.
Now, I have to go through ALL of my comments for the women's pages and posts to change any text links I have there.
I always check my banners but didn't think to check my text links because they were all correct!
Thanks again Steve for clicking on a couple of text links finding this huge error!
Off I go to check all the comments! and it's 1:30 am here :(
It makes sense that it must have been the recent WordPress update as Sanna suggested. It has to be a glitch for it to happen that way with that URL not even existing, then ending up on another post. From now on I'm going to go through my whole website after any updates!
It dawned on me that I backed up my website the other day and have copies downloaded on my laptop and memory stick. They aren't even good now with this issue. I need to check my comments which I haven't yet, then back up my website all over again deleting the last one.
