I followed 2fargon’s post on how to change folders without screwing anything up (I had a test folder, and wanted to commit to a new folder):
<Before you rename the directory, login as admin and change the following settings in the admin interface (Options -> General ) :
WordPress address (URI):
Blog address (URI):
Once you have done that, it is safe to rename the folder.>
Unfortunately, the instructions are wrong. After changing the admin interface settings, the browser looked to change something in the new folder which I hadn’t re-named yet. So I just ignored the “can’t find folder” error, and re-named the folder anyway. Then it was a vicious circle of re-naming folders and admin preferences. My original page, from the original location, now has NO FORMATTING. I put in so much work already! How can I save what I did already? I do have an old folder locally with the original settings in it, but replacing the .index and wp-layout files did nothing.
BTW, the old folder is:
and I want it to be re-named
(which has old stuff on it)
