    Don’t use localhost in a site url. Every machine on the planet thinks that it is localhost.

    I understand it. But what need to write?
    I have tryed and IP of our gate (which has configurated for redirecting to the “localhost”), and that’s don’t work: problem is still: only main page successfully loading without pictures, css and others.
    I’m can’t correctly write this options.
    Anybody can show some examples their’s
    Options – > General
    Adress WordPress (URL)
    Adress site (URL)?

    I have two directories, with that I’ m working:
    Z:\home\ network IP)\www (which content
    sitename’s files)
    and I would like see those options for this directories.

    You need to set up an internal IP address or domain name for your server and use that.
