Users cannot post after hosting transfer + header problem

  1. I transferred my hosting from WordPress to Godaddy a few days ago and after getting all of the posts imported in from the old blog I'm still having trouble in a couple of other areas.

    First, none of the users registered to the blog are able to have a post published. We can write a post and hit publish, it will say that it's published in the dashboard but on the actual site itself attempting to visit the link results in a 404 error. The format of the posts are the same as before (ex. http://arcadeheroes.com/yyyy/mm/dd/postname/). Also, with the transfer I had to make a new WP account and I can only login to the new site under that one (arcadehero), if I try using the account that I am writing this post with (shaggycade) on the same login it says invalid username. But I can be logged into that latter account automatically by visiting any WordPress page. It has me a bit confused.

    Also on an aesthetic level, I changed themes from Sapphire to Graphene and I cannot figure out how to make my header image link back to the homepage. I've tried tags to no avail and I just want the header at the top, not the text that is grabbed by the PHP header file, which I removed so it wouldn't superimpose against the header. I don't see an option in Graphene to make the image linkable so do I have to modify one of the PHP files in a particular place or just make the header an image map?

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is arcadeheroes.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

    This is an automated message.

  3. If you've moved your actual site off WordPress.com, then your users will have to sign up again at the new blog. As well, all the other issues have to be taken care of in the WordPress.ORG forums, as the WP.com software works differently.

  4. I see thanks for the help.
