    Can't find the root html file of website

    I have a really weird problem, I'm working on editing a class website with another student, but after that other student made some changes to the home page, I can no longer find the index.html it uses in the root directory! Before he made any changes the website's home page was using public_html/index.html, but now it doesn't use that file anymore. I viewed the source of the home page, and instead of linking to css/js/image files in a directory format, like "/css/site.css" or "../js/scripts.js", all content on the site now uses web URLs like "www.web2pointsomething.org/images/pic1.jpg". I'm guessing it has something to do with wordpress? I've tried to contact him but he's not responding, and I really need to make some changes to the home page.
    Can anyone check this page's code and tell me how do I access the code of the home page? www.web2pointsomething.org
    I have the cPanel login info of this website on bluehost.
    Thanks.

    It is indeed Wordpress, and so the contents of the home page are not held in an html/php file but in the database that WP uses.

    To amend content on the home page (assuming that's what you're trying to do) you need to log on to the WP admin pages - normally accessed from www.yoursite.com/wp-admin - and edit the page there.

    I tried to go to www.web2pointsomething.org/wp-admin but it's a blank page. Also I went to cPanel's public_html/wp-admin, and there is no index/home page, it's just wordpress's php files.

    Your login portal is: http://www.web2pointsomething.org/wp-login.php

    If you have administrative rights on this website, it will automatically redirect you to the admin page location.

    Usually WordPress admin pages are wp-admin.php.

    No, it isn’t. It is at http://www.web2pointsomething.org/bl...e/wp-login.php (http://www.web2pointsomething.org/blogazine/wp-admin will work, too; it redirects to wp-login.php). Note the “blogazine” directory in the URL. I found that by looking at where the CSS file is coming from in the source code.

    See the page I sent, the little log-in form on the right hand side, if you view the source and take a look at the "action" it leads to yours.

    Thank you very much.
