[resolved] Stylesheet/Theme not loading (6 posts)

    I'm trying to help someone retrieve their blog. Not exactly sure what they did, but now the stylesheet/theme is now showing. We can see the base, unstyled pages but no sign of the theme.

    I've had a good look at different files but wonder if this is a permalinks setting, somehow?

    Head hurting now so hoping one of you fine people can point us in the right direction.

    The site is at http://www.natoyaebony.com/online/

    Thank you

    Your base url is pointing to
    but it seems you have installed your wordpress in online folder
    and your base url should be

    You need to take out "category/thedates/" part.

    Check your permalink and see how it's been set up.

    If you are not sure, can you post the permalink here
    so that we can see what would be the issue?

    Thank you - that's the way I was thinking too (glad to know I'm not going mad).
    Trouble is, I can't get into the Dashboard.
    Can I get to the permalink setting via the database?

    Really appreciate your help

    Did you check .htaccess?

    If you can post it here, I will take a look.

    Just wanted to post how I fixed this in case others have a similar issue.

    The problem was caused by the permalinks being set wrong - just a missing / but that threw everything.

    So I went into the database and corrected the siteurl in the wp_options table.

    And lo - one website restored, into the Dashboard and set the permalinks to something that works.

    Huge thanks to geeksfolder for guidance.
