This is weird and I can't find a solution so far:
Somehow my wordpress site's root url is now redirecting to a specific blog post (incidentally one that I just created an hour ago), instead of the Main Index Page. No matter what I do, click on the header/home page link, type the url into the address bar myself, http://www.mysite.com/ redirects to mysite.com/new-blog-post . No other pages like category pages and singe pages redirect.
Worse, I went and deleted the offending blog post and now the home page shows a 404 error!
Anyone know if this is a wordpress 3.0 beta problem? It was installed automatically by cpanel and I wouldn't even know how to downgrade if that's the problem.
