Locked out of admin and site format is all messed up

  • So I’m fairly new to wordpress. I’ve been doing just fine so far, but I’ve run into a huge setback. I was trying to change my site’s root domain to saltspringcandles.com, rather than saltspringcandles.com/wordpress; I was foolishly experimenting in the general settings area with just changing the url, which didn’t seem to do anything.

    I quickly thought better of it and changed it back to the original url, planning to use the recommended method for changing the root. I must have done something bad though, because now I have been locked out of the admin for my site (just get the error 404 message) AND my site’s format is completely messed up when I look at it.

    I have tried checking the functions.php file and the url looks exactly as it was before. I see lots of possible troubleshooting options, but I’m unsure what the best next step to try is? what did I do? Why won’t it even ask me for my username and password?

    Am I missing something really elementary here? Thanks for any advice!
