    I made changes to database because I wanted to change a page into a posting. I successfully switched the page to a posting but now my home page redirects to that page. So when I type; http://loseweightast101.net it redirects to that posting. I dont have a redirect plug in installed. I know something got messed up. I am not sure where or how to fix it. Can someone help?

    I made changes to database

    What changes? You should never, ever, use the database to change a permalink.

    I wanted to switch a page to a post so I followed the last post in this thread http://wordpress.org/support/topic/convert-pages-to-post?replies=6

    Is there a way to reverse that?

    Did you backup your database before making these changes? The topic you were using is 6 years old. The database structure has changed considerably since then.

    No back-up. What are my other options?

    Delete all Pages & Posts and set them back up again.
