    I have setup a wordpress blog before. I am doing it on my home server running whs v1. I am wondering if my problem could be isp related since I am using a new isp. No problem setting up the site but when I go to it I only see the text. No graphics or formatting. Could this be port related. Very frustrated. Thanks in advance.

    You are running WP on a home server, and accessing it remotely?

    If so, it's usually caused by URL in WP being set at localhost

    If you view the site from any computer other than the one on which it installed, localhost doesn't work - because every computer thinks it is localhost

    This causes the computer to try to find the resources (such as a stylesheet) on itself rather than the machine WP is on

    Yeah, you need to use an actual URL... a domain configured to point to your box

    I hope that works out for you... it has been so long since I configured a WP install on a local machine I am quite fuzzy, but I recall working through the same problem you are having
