Top horizontal menu not linking to categories.

  • Answered
After the fresh install of 1.6.13, I have started working on the theme and discovered a problem that I have never encountered before. None of the category links in the top horizontal menu are working. All 404 errors.

Am I missing something?

Hello Bruce,

Sorry for the problem with the Category links and 404 errors! When something like this occurs, it's usually associated with the "friendly URLs" setting that people set for SEO purposes. Since you recently transferred over to an older database, the links are still associated with the previous installation. In order to fix it, you just need to turn OFF SEO friendly URLs, save it, then turn it back on and save the change. This will allow the software to save the proper URLs into the databse and category links will work again. We've done this already, so they should all be working.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.
