    With my current site, www.CollegeHoopsChat.com, when a link is clicked on, the following comes up:

    404 Error File Not Found

    The page you are looking for might have been removed,
    had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

    • If you typed in the URL, please check the spelling
    • You can try to click the Back button and try another link
    How do I change the permalink from the back end of the site? Thanks very much!​

    The links of my site, www.CollegeHoopsChat.com, are currently not directed anywhere. How can I change my permalinks? Thanks!

    Can you try disabling friendly URLs and see what happens then?

    How would I do that? I can't get passed the log in page on the site

    Yeah it looks like you have enabled friendly URLs but are missing the .htaccess file. Two options:

    1) Upload the "htaccess.txt" file from the zip file and rename it on the server to ".htaccess"

    2) Login directly to the Admin CP:


    And disable friendly URLs:

    Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) -> Use Full Friendly URLs
