    On my wordpress site fathomcraft my theme(traction) won't show up. Is it something in my configuration or my port forwarding. Also i am using wamp server to run my wordpress site.

    You seem to have urls that are still pointing to localhost.

    Yes. You shouldn't have any hard-coded urls in a theme. You should be using WP functions like bloginfo('url') etc.

    would it be easier if i start the website over or just find all the problem points and change them??

    What do you have entered for the site urls within Settings -> General?

    Use the functions.php option if you can.

    Should I edit the functions.php using the editor for the theme??

    Okay it works but now when I go into wp-admin and try to click on widgets or plugins it says failed to connect. What should i do now or does that mean I messed up.

    What url is it trying to connect to? Did you remove those lines from functions.php as soon as the site started working again??

    Yes, i removed the lines. I am trying to connect to fathomcraft.dyndns.org. Though I haven't restart my wamp server that is running. Should I try that.

    fathomcraft.dyndns.org, I restarted the wamp server and everything works perfect now. Thanks. I'll post more on this if I see that anything else is messed up.
