[resolved] Help, I added a keyword to my title tag and broke my website (13 posts)

    I badly need some help. My website at: http://www.easylaptopmillions.co.uk was looking fine and everything was working fine. I was advised to "Add your keyword to your title tag" and in trying to do this my website now shows a weird page.
    Can anyone suggest how I might fix this?
    Many thanks
    Greg

    Your css is supposed to be here, http://www.easylaptopmillions.co.uk/blog/laptopmillionaire/wp-content/themes/laptoptheme/css/style.css but it is not so it is not loading.

    Thanks kmessinger, I will try to fix this, but I'm not sure how! I'm kinda new to this sort of thing.

    Hi GreRobs,

    Let's try to retrace the steps that you took to make the change, but first, would you happen to have a backup of the file that kmessinger is referring to? Next, when you added the keyword to your title tag, where exactly did you do that?

    Now I can't even login to my admin panel, when I click login I get this page:
    http://www.easylaptopmillions.co.uk/blog/laptopmillionaire/wp-login.php, I try to login on that page, but that just refreshes the same page. My page login was:
    http://www.easylaptopmillions.co.uk/wp-login.php.
    Can anyone suggest how I can fix this?
    Sigh it was all going so well.

    Hi mar1965,
    I was under General settings and in the page title I added "laptopmillionaire" to the end of http://easylaptopmillions.co.uk/blog so it read:
    http://easylaptopmillions.co.uk/blog/laptopmillionaire, now I can't get in to change it back!

    Regarding backups, would you happen to have a backup of the entire WordPress site prior to making the change you described in your beginning post?

    No mar1965, I don't have a backup, I wouldn't know how to make a backup, never done one before for a website!

  9. @GreRobs: that's not a meta keyword you added; you changed the URL of the site. The URL has nothing to do with site meta and SEO.

    You don't necessarily need to restore a backup.

    Every once in a while, somebody finds a need to manually change (or fix) these settings. Usually this happens when they change one or both and discover that their site no longer works properly. This can leave the user with no easily discoverable way to correct the problem. This article (linked below) tells you how to change these settings directly.

    See Changing The Site URL « WordPress Codex for recovery instructions.

    songdogtech, thanks for pointing that out. I did notice after looking at GreRobs post.

    GreRobs, good luck to you! I am sure that the Changing The Site URL fix will help. It has happened to me in the past as well.
