    That's weird. The first time I clicked on http://jompen8.byethost13.com/?p=224 , I was able to see it... no problem.

    Then, I clicked on your homepage (the URL you listed first, in your post) and it looked like a site that hasn't moved in, yet.

    I went back to the post page that I'd seen before... and it redirected.

    That's very weird, and it suggests to me that your WP install is working fine, but your hosting service has some other routing as a default... and it's interfering with your WP.

    I'm not great with code, but I love Branford Magazine. (I co-authored Sites that Soar!, the book about installing and customizing that theme.)

    Before going back to your hosting service, I'd try installing both WordPress and the theme in a directory other than your root directory.

    That is, instead of installing WordPress in http://www.yourdomain.com/,
    I'd install it in http://www.yourdomain.com/wordpress/.

    I had a similar problem with one of my websites, and using a subdirectory solved it pretty well. I later moved my index.php and .htaccess files to my root directory (but left all of my other WP files in the subdirectory), and tweaked the code using the info at
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress#Moving_WordPress_Within_Your_Site

    I can't promise that this will help, but if it doesn't, talk with your hosting service again. Some support workers are better than others, and you may find one who understands WP.
