This is a two part question...
1. I've got xampp, I've downloaded wordpress, and I normally have no issues navigating through my local host.
But now for some reason I can't get to my admin page or any other page via my local host. When I try to get to the admin page to merely change my password, I get "Object not found!" I can't get one single wordpress feature to pop up. I'm like 90% confident I've got all my passwords and such correct.
2. Can I edit the CSS of my themes this way as opposed to paying for it through wordpress.com?
