    I have been running a wordpress.com blog for a while, but decided to go down the wordpress.org route. I have purchased a recommended host - hostgator - and designated an installation page (i.e. mydomain.com/home)

    Don't have a clue what to do next - how do I adjust my blog? I don't see any menus etc. Only a piece of the wordpress.com blog has transferred over (which I expected)

    Sorry for such a basic question. Any help is much appreciated.

    Many thanks for this but I still don't know how to access the adminstration screens I read about. When I go to the link to my installation page i.e. mydomain/home, I don't see any menus or options how to get to my administrations screens.

    Can you help please? Thanks!

    Depending on your theme, sometimes there's no links to get to the admin area. But, it's easy to do. All you need to do is add /wp-admin/ to the end of the URL that you're using. So, you'd go to http://yourdomain.com/home/wp-admin/ and that willshow you the main log in page.
