    Before an hour ago or so, I would type in mywebpage name (discountracor.com) and then select "admin-login" at the bottom of the page to login. I wasin the general settings and under the line that stated "WordPress login url" and it was listed as discountracor.com. I added /wp-admin to the box and saved the page. I left the page and then what you can see now is what pops up, which is not what my "under construction" page should look like...Any idea how to fix this problem??

    Sounds like you changed the "WordPress URL." It happens more often than you might think.

    Go into your webhosts cPanel and find phpMyAdmin. You're going to use that to look inside your WordPress database for a table called "wp_options." Insider the wp_options table, you should be able to find two rows (I believe they are called home_url and site_url)-- you'll want to remove the "/wp-admin" part that you added.

    At the risk of stating the obvious, do not change anything else.

    Once you've made that change, you should be able to log back in to your site.
