    And what urls are entered in Settings -> General?

    Settings – General has both WordPress URL and Site URL as “http://localhost/wordpress”

    What I would like to know is where does WordPress get the theme files from that are showing up at the page with URL ../username-imac.home/~username/wordpress/ ?

    As far I can tell, there is only one wordpress installation on this machine, so why would the theme be different at localhost/wordpress than at /~username/wordpress ?

    Also, when I edit files from the Admin Site Editor, is wordpress writing to physical files, or storing in the database? If I log out of the Admin Site, and log back in , the changes are in the Editor, but not in the files on the machine.

    You cannot use localhost for your site urls and then expect the site to look the same using a completely different url.
