Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist.

I just bought my wordpress hosting package and a theme (from WooThemes) and have not been able to get in to my admin page at all yet.

Here's the article that we have on using the temp URL for developing the Wordpress site:

The reason you can't get into the ADMIN is probably due to how you installed it - based on a domain name not pointed to us.

By the way, your temporary URL is:
