I just created a new blog and did my first "manual" installation of wordpress 3.1.2 at http://www.sellahouseonyourown.com/. Everything appeared to go fine (always used a script in the past to create a new blog) and the site appears fine with two exceptions:
1. The new wordpress admin bar is missing.
2. When I am working on a new post, if I try to preview the post, it gives me a 404 error.
I have installed wordpress with Fantastico more than 50 times with no issues. This was my first manual install, did I miss an option somewhere?
Troubleshooting: I have tried just using the default theme, but the problem existed in 2010 as well. I also disabled all of the plugins. Still not showing.
My header call and footer call are correct, and I even tried a re-install with the automatic update option. Grrrrr!
What did I do wrong? How do I fix it?
