[resolved] Broken Theme & Dashboard (4 posts)

    My website is http://www.bearfootcreative.net

    I am using the sliding door theme. I can't get to anyplace to tell me the version of wp - it's fairly new.

    I was attempting to have the blog posts show up on a page other than the front page by:

    1. In Settings>>Reading

    Telling it to use the front page as a static page - I think this gave me an error message and I reset it.

    2. Putting the blog page address in as the wordpress address under general settings. I think this is probably what did it.

    Now, I have no theme and I get an error message:

    "Sorry!
    We can't seem to find what you're looking for!

    The link you just followed was broken. Head back home."

    It is the same whether I put in the url for my website or for my dashboard. I get links to my pages and my page content but can find no way to get to the dashboard to fix it.

    I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

    Hi, I took a quick look. It's hard to say without seeing everything, but I'm nearly certain that you just need to fix that URL you mentioned above. There are 2 places that this URL is needed, just about next to each other in admin. My psychic powers tell me that you have

    ... when you should have...

    But it's possible that you can't even get to the admin - getting those URL settings wrong may have prevented that. If so, you can try the following, or if it's too daunting, you'll need to get a geek to investigate.

    Good luck. Dave

    Thank you so much, Dave!

    After reading the link you sent (and much mucking around), I was able to change the link in phpMyAdmin of my database in cpanel.

    I really appreciate your taking the time to help.

    You go, Madeline! Yes, PHPAdmin can fix a multitude of evils.

    Well done, and glad to have helped!

    PS: those sliders are cute.
