This is a baffling issue that seems like an obvious Wordpress issue. So, I'm hoping that I'm not the first person who has had this problem and there will be an easy fix.

 

So, I created a site for my client in Wordpress on worked on it on my server. I am now finished:

 

http://hairagainblog.com/ddblog/

 

…so its time to have it linked to his URL. I did that too:  http://doubledownswing.com/

 

All good, right? Not exactly. The links in the menu go to the Pages I set up on the server. For example, if you click on Music link on the Double Down Swing URL, it goes to: http://hairagainblog.com/ddblog/music/ as well it should. That's how it set up the Wordpress menu.

 

But how do I change that to go to doubledownswing.com/music? Wordpress allows me to change the links in the individual Pages by changing everything after the .com/ but not the root.... meaning not the original URL.

 

I am at a loss and my client is getting impatient. Any ideas??

Not sure I understand, if I go to http://doubledownswing.com/ and click on music it goes to http://doubledownswing.com/music/

Make sure you backup before upgrading and making changes.
Best results when one question per thread, link to site, version of WP, Thesis and skin.
