Clicking Page Sends To Wrong Page?

    What is going on? Heres whats up…

    I have made a new forum for my blog. As I know you cannot embed the forum onto your blog, so I decided to make a page with the link in it and maybe a paragraph about the Forums.

    Okay, so I made my Forums page on my blog, I have written a little summary, and linked to the Forums. I clicked on publish. When to I onto View Website… I wanted to proofread. So I click on forums, instead of directing me to the Forums page I created, it redirected me to the WORDPRESS FORUMS?!?!

    The title of the page is called “Forums”

    Whats going on, and how do I stop this?

    If it helps the link to my blog is… http://www.pinkmafias.wordpress.com

    THANKS!!!

    Post the code in your link here between backticks (the key to the left of the #1 key on the north american keyboard which also has the ~ on it).

    That is really weird. Maybe it’s getting redirected to the WordPress.com Forums somehow.

    Never mind the above. Try renaming the page title to “My Forums” and see what happens.

    Can you copy and paste the code that you used for the link here so we can see? You’ll need to put the marks around it so that the code itself is displayed:YOUR CODE HERE`

    That is bizarre. I’ve never seen this before.

    I think you definitely need to contact staff about this.

    Try changing your page slug to ‘message-board’.

    Right now, your forum URL reads: “http://pinkmafias.wordpress.com/forums/” so wordpress redirects whatever says forums in the URL to here. If you change the slug so that it reads “http://pinkmafias.wordpress.com/message-board/”, then you’ll be able to read your page.

    HTH
