Bootstrap to Wordpress - WP Issue with Links


I've been working on this new project and all is going well - but... I'm at the point where I'm creating the navigation menu, and when I click on a menu link, it says:

"Object not found! The requested URL was not found on this server. The link on the referring page seems to be wrong or outdated. Please inform the author of that page about the error."

I'm using XAMPP to develop it locally...

Any help would be much appreciated - thank you! Alice

have you checked your permalinks? Go to your Wordpress dashboard-> settings -> permalinks and just press the save button.
That's the first thing I always check when I have a non-working link that should be working.

Hi Andrew

Thank you so much - I thought it might have to do with the permalinks.

I set it to default and it works! Not sure how I'd get it to work with the other options though?

Thanks again!

you should be able to change the links to whatever option you want. Then save the settings. make sure to clear your browser cache and it should work out for you. Now if you have your menu set up manually (like you manually typed in the links) then you would have to fix those yourself.

Great thanks - lemme give it a try! :)
