nested pages and now links are broken

    I wanted the breadcrumbs to have the entire line of folders so viewers could click on one folder (not just home) so I nested the pages AFTER creating them all and creating a menu. Now all the links are broken in the drop down menus and in the fancylinks on the page. What do I do?

    Please ignore the lorem ipsum slider on page one--this is a work in progress...

    Hi
    I was looking a a few dropdown menu links and they seemed to work fine, I see that the links to your designs are broken, you may need to just relink those to their respective pages. You may want to clear your cache.

    As far as the bread crumbs, they look like they are working as they are suppose to, they will leave a 'bread crumb' from where you started, so it you clicked from "Home" to "Display Ads" that is all that the bread crumbs will show, it will not show "Home" > "Portfolio" > "Ads" > "Display Ads".

    Hope that helped.
    Let me know if I missed anything.

    Well, I gave up on the nested concept entirely...NOW my problem is that on the Portfolio pages (not the separate portfolio entries) the link in the header is not going to the right place, so no-one can view the original portfolio entry. The link it tries to go to is, for example:

    http://www.avmgraphics.com/portfolio/randy-and-the-special-agents-logo/gallery/logos-business-identity-packages/

    But the permalink to the original entry is:

    http://www.avmgraphics.com/index.php/portfolio/randy-and-the-special-agents-logo

    Am I not understanding the process of Wordpress or the Contact Template? I look really stupid with so many broken links--AND if I disable the title on the Portfolio pages so there are no links, I am unable to add the title back into the body of the original portfolio entry so as to describe what the viewer is looking at.

    HELP!

    I don't know what is going on, are each of these portfolio art pieces a blog post? I think somewhere the blog link got changed somehow. You can try to go into each blog post and change the URL, do you know how to do that?
    If that doesn't work you may need to make a new blog post for each portfolio piece that has a broken URL and use that URL to connect. I really don't know.

    Honestly my suggestion would be to ditch using a blog post as the way to display your portfolio. I would create a "grid" of your pieces like you have here: http://www.avmgraphics.com/index.php/catalogs/ and then ditch the "Pretty Photo" and manually create the "grid" look by using [one_third] shortcode and then for each portfolio piece create an actual individual page to that piece. This would be similar to what you are doing now but without using the blog and without using pretty photo.

    Let me know if this makes sense.

    Yes it does make sense--and in Contact, they have you create "portfolios" (in essence, a blog post) that are then grabbed to make up the actual Portfolio pages (such as Display Ads, Catalogs, Marketing Materials, etc.)

    So somehow the links get broken when they are gathered onto the pages; in the actual "portfolios" they are just fine. I think it has to be a bug or a line of code buried deeply somewhere that causes that link to break. According to the documentation, it's supposed to work seamlessly.

    May I say "ARGGH"? Recreating 40 pages is not my idea of fun.

    Thanks.
