    Trouble with Wordpress

    Hey, i just installed WordPress. Had to manual install because i'm using 1&1 hosting. Now i just did a test post, but it only shows up on www.myblog.com/?p=1....

    When i go to www.myblog.com/ it just shows the temporary registered/parking page

    how do i get the root page to be where my posts are seen? for SEO reasons, i want to keep it all under one URL right? or as much as possible at least

    It should do this by default.

    Sounds like something was cached, either at your ISP or in your browser.

    Try finding default.htm and rename it

    then go to your website, clear cache then refresh it, you will see your wordpress front page

    First of all, if your domain was parked, did you "unpark" it in your 1 and 1 control panel?

    The url ending in /?p=1 is a preview. Did you publish the post through your wordpress admin panel?

    Woops! I see the problem is solved. Congrats!
