I have been working on my site through MAMP and with a localhost. I have not uploaded my site online yet.
I have worked in it for weeks accessing through the MAMP start page and then typing http://localhost:8888 on my browser.
Well, after a long night I woke up the next day and tried to log in as always. When I do it, my site appears on the browser but I cannot edit a thing. I mean, there is no way I can enter the admin panel, there are no tabs, no WP icon, not even the little EDIT squares at the end of every post or page where I clicked and it took me to the admin panel and dashboard.
I can navigate through the site, it works perfectly, It looks as if it was online, but simply I cannot edit anything.
I tried to remember what I did differently from the other days, and the only thing I came up with is that I updated a galleria plugin and I activated a new contact plugin widget. As I read in the forums I took all the plugins from my wp-content folder inside the WordPress folder but that did not solve the problem. I tried replacing the entire WordPress folder for a fresh download, the site looks funny no photos but still cannot access to the admin panel. I have no code or programming experience and am I new to WordPress. I am stuck with a dead line and no idea on what to do!
