Unix Server Causing Problem With My Blog

I was puzzled why my blog was not getting picked up by search engines and why some people were getting “404 page not found” errors when they clicked on links in their subscriber emails.

The answer is that one of the widgets which deals with subscribers is sending out www.loch-ness.com/LochNessTony as the link to the blog because that is the name of the blog, but what it should be sending out is www.loch-ness.com/lochnesstony i.e. all lower case.

Most servers would ignore the difference. Unix servers do not.

Pleas for help are on the way to WordPress and JetPack. If they can’t help I really will have to remove everything and start all over again.

You have to love computers, don’t you?

Thanks to everyone for their help and patience.
