    As a message reading sorry can not find what your looking form appeared on my home/ landing page I thought I'd change the site url & homepage url in the admin panel. Unfortunately Im not sure what I put in there. Now the whole site has dissapeared, even the admin login.
    I've been reading posts with similar problems however I just can't figure it out. Im using the photocratie theme.
    I tried editing the following line
    from a post from someone with a similar problem, however it did not work
    My website is michellemarx.net
    I'd really appreciate any hulp

    1) We don't support paid themes or themes that are not downloaded from the WordPress.org theme repository.

    2) Read this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL

    3) I think the easiest way to fix it (based on the above help) is to actually go into your WordPress database and fix the wp-options table 'site-url' and 'home' options to reflect the true URL. But another good option would be to add define('RELOCATE',true); to your wp-config file (just above the "That's all, stop editing" statement). This will allow you to login via the URL http://example.com/wp-login.php (replace example with your domain) and allow you to fix things via the WordPress backend. Once you've fixed things, make sure to comment out or remove the "relocate" directive from your wp-config.php file.

    4) After that's all done, make sure to use a tool like http://wordpress.org/plugins/velvet-blues-update-urls/ to make sure all the URL's are correct throughout your site content.
