After searching through many different threads tonight, I realize that I must just be too much of a 'newbie' to even recognize when my question is answered. So, I carefully proceed with my question...
I have signed up for a hosting package with DH..set my domain name..installed WordPress in the folder that has my domain name as the title..installed a WordPress theme I found online. Everything had been working great with placing content on the page...until it came time to deal with a default link that came with the WordPress theme.
The website I am setting up has a component of several audio files (all hosted somewhere else). The WordPress theme deals with these wonderfully until I place too many audio files into the designated location. When this happens, the theme is set up to automatically place the older audio files into an audio file archive. When I hover over the link to the audio file archive I see that it wants to direct me to "www.mydomainname.ca/media". However, when I click on the link I get this message..."The requested URL/media was not found on this server".
I realized quickly that all the content I was submitting to the site was going to URLs that looked like this "www.mydomainname.ca/?page_id=11" rather than looking like this "www.mydomainname.ca/media".
All I want to do is be able to utilize that default link to redirect those interested in older audio files to the archive. I do not think I am looking at a subdomain issue. Can anyone identify what I should be looking for or doing in order to accomplish this task?
Thank you so very much in advance for your help!
