Thanks in advance. I'm new here, but I couldn't have learned all I have so far without all of your help.
I had built http://www.johncolvert.com/wordpress. It looked and worked exactly how I wanted it. Ready to move it over to the root folder (www.johncolvert.com), I followed this video perfectly (to my knowledge) and then once I reloaded the site, it was ruined... no widgets, background image, header, etc. So, panicking I reversed my steps to put it back into the sub-directory. Everything moved back, but it still looks as it did when I first moved it to the root.
I'm assuming (and hoping) it's a simple fix. I've been on the forums for hours and have gotten nowhere... please help! Thanks.
