    Where is the administrative panel located? I can't seem to find it anywhere. My website doesn't even show up when I click on the link. It displays a fatal error message.

    I am using GoDaddy to host my site and I think I might have screwed things up.

    Can I only log in from the home page of my website?

    Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    stop.

    http://www.strengthandknowledge.com/

    The error you see there is caused by you editing the index.php that is sitting in the same directory as your wp-config.php

    That File does not get edited.

    You need to stop trying to do things when you dont know what you are doing, and do some reading -- thats what the link at the top of the page that says Docs is for.

    Thats called Documentation.

    --

    To fix the immediate error you see you need there, to delete the index.php that you have edited, and upload a fresh copy of the one out of the wordpress zip.

    There will be atleast 3 of them inside the zip -- you want the one that is inside the same folder as the wp-config.php-sample.

    --

    And please, if you are unwilling to familiarize yourself with the basic workings of WP -- hire someone that is, its much simpler in the long run.

    ok, I'll try that. I wish this stuff was easy for noobs like myself. I'm not very technical and I am just learning with building a weblog and coding.

    thank you

    Not everyone is meant to do everything. You don't see me trying to remove my next-door neighbor's spleen, do you? (Hint: It's because I'm not a doctor, in general, or a surgeon in particular.)

    And if you are just learning, then do as Whoo said: READ. Start with the link above. And don't try to redesign your site right off the bat. Just blog a little; live with WordPress for awhile. Get familiar with it. THEN worry about tweaking it.

    Content is king anyway, so you really should focus on that if you want a well trafficked blog.
