All My Links Go to My Homepage in WordPress

If you are experiencing this frustrating phenomena, where all of the links on your WordPress site go to your home page, then try this.

  • Log in to your admin panel for your WordPress site.
  • Mouse over the Settings tab in your navigation menu and click on Permalinks.
  • Click the Save Changes button at the bottom of the page.

That should do it! At least, it worked for me.

I ran into this problem myself. I searched and googled the problem and didn’t find very much helpful info. Somebody had mentioned making changes to the .htaccess file, but, fortunately for me, that wasn’t necessary.

I called my web hosting company, because I was trying to change the .htaccess file to no avail. The tech there suggested we do a site restore. Before doing that, though, he put me on hold for a couple minutes and came back with this solution.
