    http://sonicpeakradio.com is redirecting to http://sonicpeakradio/. What did you do to change the permalink?

    I was in the wordpress.com setting tab. I changed it to sonicpeakradio rather than some really long crazy thing that it had. But now when I go to wordpress.com and click on the settings tab it glitches out. The URL bar goes crazy and never loads the settings page. I hope this makes some sense, im brand new to this.

    wordpress.com has nothing to do with your site.

    Edit wp-config.php and set the siteurl correctly: https://wordpress.org/support/article/editing-wp-config-php/#wp_siteurl

    You can do that via FTP or the file manager app of your hosting control panel.

    Dang, I guess I got in a little to deep by changing a setting on wordpress.com. Ok, i will try and get this

    So I have been trying to mess with the wp-config.php but i cannot seem to get it to work. I have no background in coding, but I have been pasting the “define” lines of code that the tutorial has been suggesting. But it is very vague on where to put the lines of code and also what exactly to put in the lines of code.

    Put them anyplace before where it says “stop editing”.

    Solved. The team over at Bluehost helped me out. They fixed it quickly. thank you
