Some of my pages are publishing with juniperhillantiques.com and others publishing with juniperhillantiques.homestead.com. I do not want to publish with the .homestead and how do I change the pages that have already done this? What am I doing wrong? TIA!

When you make the link, and are trying to link to something on your own site, do not select URL, select use existing page or file and then hit the browse button. You can select the desired page from that point.

I am hopelessly lost.  When I publish a page it comes up .homestead, when i access the same page from the navigation it comes up correct.  What am I doing wrong and can i correct this? I have a feeling that this problem is why Google is not picking up my interior pages that are not connected to my navigation menu (?)

This image is linked to http://juniperhillantiques.homestead.com/Furniture40.html
so it will show that URL in the address bar. To fix it look at my series of images below.



Click on the image and then on the link button.



You will see this screen. Click the existing page or file, then click browse.



In the list that pops up, find the desired page and click it and then ok.



This is what you should see.



Click ok and you should see it this way.



Click publish and then go to the live page and click that image. You will see it goes to the page by the domain name now.

Unfortunately, there is no way to do this universally, so each link to a URL that contains the .homestead needs to be updated.

I am happy to help and feel free to ask anything along the way. Sometimes I miss a confusing little step because I have done it so often and it doesn't occur to me.

Ok, here is what I did.
Changed the link from URL to "existing page and file", saved and published page.  Clicked the link on the newly published page and it still shows up as .homestead.

Is there a possibility that because a lot of these pages were originally made on DESKTOP I am having this problem trying to fix them?  Last year I was working between Desktop and SB+ and was wondering if I caused some confusion in programs?  Do I DARE try fixing things on Desktop?

Let me look and make sure. It might be a cache issue right now

It did work for me. Can you clear your browser history? Or go to the shabby page and hit f5, then click the image.
