How to make WordPress “Page” link to any url

Today I have been looking for solution for making one of my “page” links linking to category of posts for one of my WordPress projects. I have found a few tips about putting “href” tags in description etc. But it have broken my layout.

Then I have found great WordPress plugin called “Page Links To” that would let you put any URL instead of your real page content (even external!). When you install it you get additional field in your Add New Page section where you can put your url. For me it works like a charm!

Problem with 404 error on /wp-admin/ in WordPress

I have just been moving my blog to new host. Everything was fine after I did it as described at WordPress Codex except admin panel.

When I was trying to login to Dashboard I got 404 error. There is one very simple solution for it. When I was moving files from my old host my ftp client set chmod of /wp-admin/ directory to 775. It won’t work with this permission. All you need to do is to change it to 755 and it should be working again.

MySQL login details in WordPress

If you have decided to move a copy of your wordpress to other host propably you will have problem with your mysql login details. Even if mysql database name, login and password are same – propably you will have to change login host (until it is not localhost :) ). It is very easy to do. All you need to change after you copy WordPress script to your new account is to edit wp-config.php file. Open it in any text editor (Notepad would be ok), find and edit following lines:

define('DB_NAME', 'put_db_name_here');
define('DB_USER', 'put_db_login_here');
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'put_db_password_here');
define('DB_HOST', 'put_mysql_host_here');

And that’s all :)
