    So my wordpress was working good until I went to settings - general and where it had my url.. I took out the www in both instances and clicked save. Now I can't access my wp-admin.. it redirects me. And my wordpress doesn't look the same anymore. Please help. I will pm someone the urls if that will help you.

    I try to get back to my wp-admin but I can't.. heres what happens when I type mysite.org/wp-admin

    http://mysite.org/?mysite_org/wp-login_php&redirect_to=http:/mysite.org/wp-admin/

    And I get the home page of my site, except its not formatted correctly and looks like crap.

    Look at your .htaccess, it could be causing this redirect.

    Empty it (after backup) and then try again or check google for a standard .htaccess for wp.

    Other option would be to disable all plugins by removing them temporarily (as you can't access the admin) and see if it helps.

    Sounds like you might have made a mistake when you edited the site url. Did you remove the period after the www?

    In order to fix this, afaik, you will have to access your hosting account. If you can do that go to phpmyadmin (if you have it) and access the database for your wordpress install.

    You need to find the entry for siteurl in the wp-options table and change it back to what it was, then begin again in the wp admin.

    But, if you did mess this up the first time, then you really need to be careful when messing around with your database. If you are at all unsure of what you are doing I would suggest that you get someone else to do it for you.

    Other than that, I don't know how else to fix this.
