configure internal link to Drupal 7 installation

I have a Drupal 7 installation that has links to the site such as:

http://mycompany.com/?q=content/contenttype

I want to make this an internal link so I can clone the site as a test site and not have to go through and make many changes throughout the installation.  Is there some way to refer to this content my an internal link name? The file I want to edit is page--front.tpl.php.

http://localhost/?q=content/contenttype     Does not work.  I think I need to know how to reference it as a node.

<a href="node/??">link<\a    should work but how do I find the node number?

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking here, but you can get the node number by editing the page. You'll see the node number in the path. It will be something like node/10/edit. You can link to it directly using node/10.

You might also want to consider enabling clean URLS on the configure page so your links don't have the q=, which makes the pages better for SEO.

Tells me "Clean URLs cannot be enabled".

I don't see a reference to node on the edit page. I do see

content/content

$q=content/content      looks like it works. I will do some more testing.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Do you have access to the .htaccess file in the root folder? There is a line that has to be uncommented, which will probably make clean URLs possible.In the .htaccess file I am looking at it is line 98 and says:
#   RewriteBase /
take out the #, which will "uncomment it out"

I found the line and commented it. It still tells me clean urls is not available. May have something to do with it running on IIS instead of Apache.

Oh, I don't know much about IIS.
I only have Apache suggestions.

Did not find much on the links but original problem is solved using ?q=content/contenttype .

Would like to enable clean urls but that is a different topic.
