Moving WordPress to a sub directory within GoDaddy resulted in broken WP (1 post)

    Hello all, hoping you can help me resolve a couple issues.

    Background: Got a Webhosting account with GoDaddy, initial WP was installed at root. Second WP was added while waiting for domain to transfer to GD. The second install was located in a folder below the root directory everything was working except the domain name. When domain was transferred, was instructed by GD that second install was not the right way. Installed third WP in subdirectory below second install with intent of removing the second install. Everything in third WP was working as should for production except for domain redirect. Knowing enough to be dangerous, changed the site and home URL in the db to mydomain.com. Blew away all WP files in second install to follow instructions from this URL:


    Somethings are working, some are not. I am using a twenty eleven child theme. All pages, menus, permalinks, customizations to child theme and some plugins are working. Had to upload and insert all media even though physically they had not moved.

    Main problem now: Can not get some plugins to work. Have deactivated, deleted and reinstalled several times. Configured exactly as before with no luck. For example: Translucent image slideshow gallery works, but random image with light box does not. WP-slimbox2 worked before, now it will not. Thinking that I must have missed configuring something from the URL above when things were switched and some plugin paths might be confused.

    Does anyone have suggestions?
