    I have do daddy pointing

    http://www.mackconsult.com/ to 24.22.111.106 on comcast

    That forwards through my router to my wordpress install on my QNAP. I have wordpress installed in a wordpress directory in the web folder of the QNAP and the index php file as the following in it:

    ('./wordpress/wp-blog-header.php')

    In my settings of wordpress I have the following:

    WordPress address (URL) http://24.22.111.106/wordpress
    Site address (URL) http://www.mackconsult.com

    Everything works but its kind of annoying that when I click on something on the website or copy a URL its all 24.22.111.106 and not http://www.mackconsult.com.

    If I try and replace the wordpress address 24.22.111.106 with http://www.mackconsult.com it breaks everything ....

    am I missing something here?????

    How long has it been since you put in the DNS record? I'm not seeing http://www.mackconsult.com resolving to 24.22.111.106 yet... sometimes it can take as long as 24 to 48 hours.

    I made the change last night ....

    This morning I got up and the site pulled up differently which I thought meant that a change did go through .....

    But maybe not ....
