Here's something from a total beginner with WordPress and no guru with coding and programming:
I've just installed WordPress 2.7.1 locally, based on a Wamp Server install in WinXp. Playing around in the settings, I noticed the following message in the Dashboard, under Incoming Links:
The word "saying" was a link (as I formated it above). The "http://localhost..." was plane text. Buyacorp, bolded. "wp" is the name of the folder where I installed WordPress locally.
I quickly deconnected the Wamp Server. :)
Any suggestions? Any fixes?
