    Hi,
    I have installed wordpress in my laptop(Win XP). It is running on Apache, MySQL and PHP 5.05.
    I can post and view articles without any problem from my local machine. But whenever I try to post or view articles from another machine all the formatting gets meesed up. If I try to view other articles clicking on the link I get 404 error.
    Please help.
    Tawfiq.

    That's probably because on your machine, you have an address of http://localhost/blog so the css address will be referenced in the same way.
    localhost on another machine is not localhost on that machine, so errors get thrown out.

    In my laptop(this is where I installed wordpress), I can work without any trouble by referring to http://localhost/wordpress/.
    But from other machine I refer to http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/wordpress/ to access the blog setup in my laptop. Here the problem arises as all the contents are shown in one column and when I try to login by clicking on the login link I get 404 error.
