cogs links and nav bar links have wrong url's RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have just set up a new instance of sharepoint 2013. I have added a new site under the defaultcollection. The sub site seems to be working OK but the internal links to "Site Settings" etc are rendering incorrectly.

    Where do I adjust these links so they render correctly?



    Case 1

    1> Developer Test Site Collection > test1

    2> click cog > Site settings > url = 


    3> this sends me to > Sorry something wet wrong

    Case 2

    1> click the main blue sharepoint icon 

    2> sends to blah.cloudapp.net/_layouts/15/start.aspx#/SitePages/Home.aspx > "sorry something wet wrong"

    Case 3

    1> on http://blah.cloudapp.net/_layouts/15/settings.aspx?Source=http%3A%2F%2Fblah.cloudapp.net%2F_layouts%2F15%2FManageFeatures.aspx > click "test1"

    2> sends to blah.cloudapp.net/_layouts/15/start.aspx#//test1/

  • Hi,

    According the description, I know you create a new site collection under SharePoint 80 web application and create a sub site under it, right?

    Are you able to access the site settings on the parent site or the top site? How did you configure alternate access mappings?

    Create a new site collection and see how it works.

    Meanwhile, you can take a look at the log and map the correlation ID to log contents to find the culprit.
