WAMP wordpress permalink problem

I just started working on my first mobile theme and using  a new jumpmobi theme which seems the best I have ever seen. I will be using it co-existent with an existing desktop site and use a sub directory for it.

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted

I recently moved a WP site onto a good free host facility as they really didn’t want to pay for hosting on what was a fun blog for them.

WP-DBManager Error

I have just migrated a wp site to a new host and all went well. I created a new database and imported the db backup from the old host.

301 redirect to the “www” site

Fred Morgan – seoexploration.com With the modern style of losing the “www” at the beginning of the website URL you may encounter problems – especially with statistical analysis programs.
