  • Hi

    I was messing with something I shouldn’t have messed with and ended up losing my blog. I changed both the

    WordPress URL
    Site address URL

    My site stopped working so I found this article which helped me get the blog back on line

    What I have done
    I went into my Wp-config.php and pasted in the following after the define statements


    They are the original urls that I changed – The site now works!

    However in the article it clearly states that they should be removed from the Wp-config.php file. When I do this the blog does not work again.

    I have created a function.php and pasted the information into it as instructed and saved to the theme directory but I still lose the blog if I remove the ‘define’ statements from the wp-config.php

    Can anybody please assist?

    That set’s it temporarily which is not good. You really shouldn’t leave that there because what you really want is to update the options in the database.

    Try making a backup copy of your theme’s functions.php file then add on the top these two lines instead to that wp-content/themes/Envisioned/functions.php file.


    Now visit your blog. That will then actually update the database with those two settings. Once that’s done, revert the wp-content/themes/Envisioned/functions.php file back to the original version.

    After that you can also remove those two define( statements in yout wp-config.php file. Make sure you have a backup copy of that one too. 😉
