A path/database/siteurl issue (3 posts)

    This is my first attempt at installing a wordpress blog and things are not going well.

    When I first installed WordPress on my server, no styles could be found and therefore it would just appear as paragraphs of text.

    I went into the mysql database using my hosts control panel and edited the "siteurl" field by removing the ?step=2 from the end of the url.

    This worked and for the first time I could view the homepage and the cms. After looking around the CMS for a while I tried adding content to the "About" page but once I'd updated it, clicking the link from the homepage did nothing, in fact I cannot view any pages except the homepage. Obviously the ?step=2 is essential to generating a page structure but I have no idea how to make this work.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. The URL is below

    no it isn't
    check that BOTH url's are correct

    then set your permalinks
    admin - settings - permalinks
