I am not quite sure how I ended up here.
I have google apps manage the mail side and a new host to manage everything else.
I have the google set up and works marvelous. yay.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled, and used no plugins, and some plugins, etc.
The only reason I was editing the home.html file was because the site wasnt showing up.
I have one click install with the host and perhaps thats the problem.
At this point, I think I will transfer all of my stuff to multisite but they are their own domains. my project keeps getting larger and bigger.
I think it may be best to simply delete everything and start over. argh.
