I am back again, feeling defeated and that I am not so smart...
After fixing my URL redirect problem. I have run into another problem.
I am trying to add a couple of test products to the site, as well as categories. But nothing Saves.
I go through the process of adding a product of category and click "save and continue" etc...but nothing saves.
I have tried the usual troubleshooting steps, index products, index this and that, clear the cache, made sure the product showed in stock, had a quantity, etc...but nothing works.
I installed magento onto my test hosting platform over at bluehost. I didn't upload any of the sample data this time around (I have reinstalled magento several times, each time dropping the tables in SQL, and having the install process build them back) I am on 1.9.x of magento.
If there are no JS issues it could be a server issue. Enable your log reporting at
System -> Configuration -> Developer -> Log settings
See if anything is written to var/log - this will give you any indication of server configuration issues.
Thanks guys, I will check it now.
Just to clarify, you want me to check for JS on the admin panel side or the actual website?
On the panel side.
A lot of actions are triggered by js functions and the idea is to check ir you're getting some of those errors.
These also just showed up

Nothing saves actually,
So I turned on the Log like you suggested and it showed "saved configuration..." in the green box at the top. Go to Base/var/log and nothing, go back into settings and the setting shows "no" for logs. Like I didn't even change it.
Try checking if your file permissions are set correctly.
If your hosting server is using SuPHP or SuExec, set all files to 644 and all directories to 755. If the server doesn't use SuPHP or SuExec, you may need to set some of those files and directories to 666 and 777 like /media and /var.
