404 Page Cannot be Found Error

  1. I seem to be having a problem with my blog.

    http://danielakawmd.wordpress.com/

    The main index page loads absolutely fine, but when I try to click on an article or to view the comments on an article I'm greeted with a lovely, yet annoying 404 error message. I've checked the Dashboard and the posts are definitely in there. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

    The blog I need help with is danielakawmd.wordpress.com.

  2. I have experience the same problem! Yikes. Would love to hear from someone on this. My fear: Lost everything. Yikes.

  3. I've just realized I can't view any other pages on my blog either.

  4. Same here.

    Can edit the pages tho so don't worry, it's a glitch which will hopefully be fixed soon.

    I didn't even lose the comment I was writing.

  5. I just posted the same message. It seems I'm not the only one. Well, at least that's a bit more comforting.

  6. I'm having the same issue. Very scary sh*t, lol.

  7. Mine seem to be working again. (Wipes brow.) Oy. Close call. Knocking on wood as we speak...

  8. So "nice" to see that I'm not alone with this problem ;)

  9. Yep, fixed here too. Just as I was making a backup. ;)

  10. Mines working again now too, phew!

  11. Mine too. WTH was that???

  12. How many threads so you think we need on this same issue?

  13. As you guys already noticed, this is already fixed. It was a problem with the link structure. It was broken then fixed on the code side. Sorry about that!

  14. @timethief

    We need at least two threads in case one returns a 404 error. ;)

  15. Google stopped indexing my website for the last 2 days. I have been deleting pages because I wanted to remove irrelevant content. I just read the Google Guidelines and they suggest creating a 404 error page to inform users where they can go to find the information or to leave a nice note. Meanwhile, I do not understand the tech of creating a a 404 page. I see that this can be done on WordPress.org. Can we do this on WordPress.com?

  16. @carlaspacher
    All 404 pages are built into our themes and "no" we wordpress.com bloggers cannot create our own 404 pages or edit those that the theme supplies. Whenever we delete a page the 404 message appears automatically. Deleting pages and breaking links is something that we try to avoid doing. As fare as Google goes all indexing issues are between the blogger and the search engine, we cannot help with that.

  17. Thanks so much!

  18. You're welcome Carla and best wishes with your blog. :)

  19. Erm...is this issue back? cos i'm getting it now...cant access any pages on my site.

  20. Since you have a protected blog, we can't examine the problem or offer suggestions, except that you contact staff directly

  21. oops..sorry...i've made it visible...its http://www.byebyefats.com...wonder what seems to be problem

  22. http://byebyefats.com/ is not a WordPress.COM site. You need to be at WordPress.ORG for help with that, as our software works a bit differently

  23. huh... =( sorry i'm very new here and don't know much about wordpress.COM or ORG...i installed wordpress via my web hosting and created byebyefats.com through that.

  24. And as explained in the sticky thread at the top of the forum, you need to be at WordPress.ORG for those kinds of blogs.
