Questions and Examples of Use

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why the main site gives me the 404 or Not Found error message or I cannot see the “Submitt a link”?

This usually occurs only when using a custom permalink structure (like /%category%/%postname%/).
This is a .htaccess 404 error message and you should update your .htaccess file in the WP root directory.

Normally you should not edit the htaccess, the Permalink link will be detect by plugin automatically.

Please install the CURL module for PHP.

    Some web designers work by communicating only by
    email. Give priority to a company that makes your imagination come
    true. Therefore, iit is eminent forr all online entities to develop their website
    in the most user friendly manner.
