I am currently completely confused about some of my plugins and links not working. This has to do with DNS entries I would assume and the fact that I had to setup the site without the DNS being pointed at the right location.
Here is what I did so far:
I had to use http://server50.hostpoint.ch/~rockpock/oliverandspike/blog/ to set up and test the blog (url from my host to work with before any DNS entry). This is a subfolder of our planned website which will have a different domain linked to it.
The folder in question is now also linked to blog.oliverandspike.com and oliverandspike.com.
I am now lost about two things:
First of all I am using WordPress MobilePack to switch to a different mobile version if you check out the site from a mobile device. This works nicely with the server50 url but not with the new url for whatever reason. The theme is a responsive theme I am using for the mobile and while it does scale down in the server50 url it does not in the blog.oliverandspike.com or oliverandspike.com
I assume under general settings I should change the wordpress address url, right? right now it’s linked to the server50 address. But I am a) not sure which to link to and b) I am super afraid that once I change that I will screw something up and not be able to access the actual wordpress anymore.
I have worked with wordpress a lot but I always had issues understanding the technical stuff like DNS and url/database connections.
If anyone could give me some tips I would be forever grateful 🙂
Thanks a lot in advance!
