    Problem after DNS change, by TeqToo

    I think I may have done something wrong. I’ve been working on a site where the domain name isn’t pointed there yet. In order to be able to work on the site, I’ve had to edit my hosts file so that when I pointed my browser to the domain name, it redirected to the preview site ( This is because the preview link did not work for making any actual pages, posts or anything else on the site.)

    Finished working on the site, and prior to changing the DNS settings, went into the Dashboard to be sure the Site Address and WordPress Address were mydomain.com. They were. But evidently my permalinks were set to instead of http://www.mydomain.org/post-name.

    I went to the domain registrar and changed the DNS Settings. Then I re-edited my hosts file so pointing the browser to mydomain.org no longer points to the preview site.

    Now, I can go to the preview link, and see the settings in there –, but it shows the Site Address and WordPress address as instead of http://www.mydomain.org. Of course, I can’t make any changes through the preview link.

    The domain name change hasn’t propogated yet. Am I going to be unable to access the admin site once the domain name does propogate?
