IP address to domain name (3 posts)

    We installed and built an entire site before the domain name propagated,so that the URL always displays the IP address, rather than the domain name. (This occurs even when you access site via domain name...it switches automatically to IP address

    We need to change this, but I haven't been able to find any documentation or posts that resolve this issue.

    My apologies if I have missed this.

    You just need to change your wordpress and blog url in your dashboard settings. Here is some documentation on it. You start at step 2 and end on 7 in your case.
