[resolved] Can't access admin; 404 error; formatting gone (6 posts)

    Help, please. I can't access my blog through admin. Also, the formatting and theme (Magazine Basic) are gone. I've copied the articles into Word, so I'm not worried about losing the content. If I have to start over from scratch, I can.

    I had wanted to add one of those orange RSS symbols to the page. Somewhere on here, I read that I should add /some word/ to the end of the address, so I did. I think the word was /follow/ or something like that. I did, then updated the site, but it didn't work, so I went back into settings, general, and removed it and updated again. Bang. No more access or formatting.

    Can I just delete everything and start all over again?

    I have an FTP account with my host, Blue Host, but I have no idea what it means when someone says to FTP to the site. From where? How? Then what? Since I have saved all my images and text, and the site was only 2 days old, I'd rather just start over.

    Thanks for the quick response!

    How can I fix the URLs if I can't access admin?

    The link you posted concerns icons, as near as I can tell, and has nothing to do with URLs.

    OK--thanks for your help, you two. Live Chat at Bluehost fixed it. All is well.
