[resolved] Customize Site/Preview Tool (9 posts)

    I am completely new to WordPress.

    I choose a theme, but every time I try to customize it/go to the preview page, the tool comes up on the left, but it brings me to the log-in page for WordPress and says "Your session has expired. Please log-in again." I keep logging in, it says I am successful and then it bring me back to the log-in page.

    I can't preview the changes I've made and there is still nothing live on my site.

    I thought it might be my cookie settings, but I changed it to allow all cookies.

    I also tried 2 different themes.

    Your site doesn't appear to be working at all - I get a page with only a zero in the corner. How long ago did you set it up? Was it running correctly ever?

    I just linked wordpress about an hour ago (and just signed up for the web hosting this morning) and I don't think it was ever working correctly, as in the page always only had a 0 -- should something be on the page?

    Yes, WordPress should be visible and working if it's installed there correctly. But it could be a domain name propagation issue - as that can take up to 72 hours (usually less).

    Did you install WordPress or does iPage have a 1-click install?

    iPage has a 1-click install

    Then I'd suggest asking them - or you could try reinstalling it per:

    Thanks! I contacted iPage and they fixed it.
