    I tried to change my URL from http://www.willgoble.com/wp/ to just http://www.willgoble.com

    Now I can't log in to wp-admin, and my wp site has lost all aspects of theme and design.

    How can I get back, I clearly did something wrong, looks like i"ve lost everything!!! HELP!!

    Now try reading the link I gave above. You do not need access to your admin area.

    I'm getting this now, after I inserted the approriate code in the functions.php file and reuploaded that through FTP:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/gobleswing/willgoble.com/wp/wp-content/themes/Minimal/functions.php on line 4

    Did you add the lines after the opening <?php tag? It also looks like you may have omitted one or more quote marks. You have to follow the instructions exactly.

    I needed to u[date the wp-config file, the functions.php change didn't do it, because WP couldn't locate what it needed to, i got it.

    Well done! Now review the second link if you want your WP site to take over the root domain.
