Receptacles and switches not working. Help please.
C'mon; you know what to do! :-) Go back and check all of your work. It sounds like you got everything wired back in properly, but I'll bet that you will find something loose or one of your wires touching something that it shouldn't. I'd run the same sequence that you did the first time, just to be sure that you don't miss anything, but the problem is very possibly at the GFCI receptacle, as they take up a fair amount of space, and are quick to trip, so it's easy to have two wires touch, or one of them to touch the box. Also make sure that you are using the proper size wire nuts, so that they work the way that they are designed to, and that your switches and receptacles are secured such that they aren't wiggling around in their boxes. See, you knew the answer; didn't you? :-)
