    I had my blog working and everything...the url to the blog was: http://www.jamesfurlan.com/computertips/wordpress and I changed it to: http://www.jamesfurlan.com/computertips/ and now my blog is not functioning properly. I want to change it back to the original url but I can't, how can I fix this?

    What directions did you use to "change the url"?

    of course not, you changed the url. If you change your address at the post office, but you dont actually move, youre never going to get your mail. The value(s) you changed are not arbitrary -- they are based on the physical location of your files.

    If you dont know what you are doing, dont play. or if you want to play, at least read the docs.

    I'm still struggling a bit to understand exactly what you did.

    What "settings" - do you mean in the wordpress admin panel? I'm assuming that is what you meant.

    If that is the case, read:

    You are probably already on about step #6. :)

    Alternatively, you could use the site link that whooami posted above to simply move the URL back to http://www.jamesfurlan.com/computertips/wordpress

    Hope that helps!

    Best of luck,
    A
