I fiddled with the Blog Name in General Settings and 'lost' my theme. I found a post that showed me how to 'force' a fix in the wp-config file (http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL) and I was able to get back my index page and ability to log in to the admin panel. But now... none of the links work at all. They look okay on the one page I can see (below), but go to 404's.
Here's what I can see: http://www.elysiumyoga.com/index_wp.php
http://www.elysiumyoga.com/index.html - my current live website (that I'm trying to replace with a new WP version which is ready to launch btw but I fiddled in General Settings and 'lost' it) A lot of my links just go here to the homepage instead of to the WP page that was working before.
http://www.elysiumyoga.com/index_wp.php - I renamed the index.php file at the root to index_wp.php as soon as I downloaded WP to my GoDaddy hosting. This was so that my live site wouldn't reveal my new WP homepage until I was ready. I did over 2 months of work on the site and have 301 redirects ready to go. I wrote 30 new posts in addition to about 20 I'm redirecting.
When I began, I had changed the blog name in General Settings too to http://www.elysiumyoga.com/index_wp.php so that I could have a 'staging' area more or less. So the blog name matched the root name index_wp.php. I was just going to go to the root on the day of launch, rename index_wp.php to index.php, change it back to http://www.elysiumyoga.com in General Settings and then run my redirects...close my eyes and pray. (This was all under advisement from a WP guru.)
But... I fiddled, lost the theme, couldn't log in, then found a post here and followed the directions for the wp-config file fix.
At this moment, the index at the root is still index_wp.php just in case it still needs to be since I haven't officially 'launched' my new site. The wp-config file is http://www.elysiumyoga.com. Nothing seems to work with or without using a _wp.php on the end of the index page.
Any thoughts? Thank you in advance.
