Blog is generic, left justified, no pictures or categories

I have not posted in a month and a half and when I logged in today, it looks like a generic word processing file with no pictures, a bright blue background, no categories to the right, etc. My theme is not up, my pictures are not up.

  9. If I just type in in my browser, it looks the same, white background, generic black or blue font, all left justified, no pictures. No fluff, just words.

  10. Why are you logging in there?
    This is the direct Admin login link to your own blog >

    I was not able to complete 4 from the blog because of the format which exists. I clicked the link, but nothing happened.

    I also downloaded Google Chrome and tried accessing the blog from there, but nothing changed in that browser, either. All are updated versions.

  15. Perhaps I'll have to start over with a new blog?

    No, it's working just fine:

    That is the blog you're referring to, right?

  16. Yes, that's the one. Looks nice from your side of things!

  17. When I try to access a friends blog on WP, it looks the same: generic and like a word processing file. Must be something on my end. Any other thoughts?

    Thank you.

  20. You're welcome!
