Got to love WordPress, not ready for primetime…used everywhere.   And they sure know how to pass the buck to the hosting company.   Site has been running since 2018, and other than getting hacked and accidentally deleted by me, running fine.  Today, I discover EVERY link to an internal page returns a 404.   They are there, I can view them in WP, I can edit them, I can publish/update them….just cannot preview or view, 404 every time.

Websearch says it is one of four things, none of which apply to a managed site.    WP, if they mention it at all, quickly point the finger at the hosting company…even though users report the problem comes and goes with updates (or sometimes just randomly).  I’ll contact the host on Monday and see if they can force an upgrade to the software, or downgrade me one versions.  Until then, the homepage and gallery links (to subdomains) work, downloads, links and about creator are lost in WP 404-land.
