Just a little backstory... I'm familiar with WP.com but new to WP.org. I've recently decided to start a new blog and decided to go self-hosted. I'm using Dreamhost. I did the one-click install through their site and have been trying to get a jump start on the looks of the site through Anonymouse as suggested by someone in the help at Dreamhost. When I get the WP login page through Anonymouse I log in and it has me on a loop... The page just refreshes. If I try to reset the password I get the white screen. I've read loads of forum posts about this and I just don't understand the lingo. I'm willing to start at the very beginning [including deleting & reinstalling if necessary]. I would just really like to get to the familiar territory of the dashboard.
Thanks in advance!
