theme doesn't display on local network (7 posts)

    So, I have a windows machine running xampp and wordpress on my home network. I have a router that passes all http traffic to this machine. I have set a theme in wordpress.

    On the webserver, if I browse localhost, everything looks fine.
    From the internet (work), if I browse to my domain, and the traffic is routed to my webserver, everything looks fine.
    However, if on another machine on my local network, I try and browse the webserver, I get the wordpress page displayed with NO theme (maybe no css?) just plain tags.

    Any thoughts on this. The router is a linksys wireless (I imagine the router might be the issue, but this is very strange). Also, this happens with both firefox and ie.

    No, the issue is that the two URI values in admin > Options > General being set as "localhost" - that's stored in the DB.
    Now, every machine in the world "thinks" that localhost is itself and is looking for the stylesheet on its own hard disc :)

    Thank you for your reply!
    However both of the URI's were set to the FQDN, not localhost. :-(
    Other thoughts?

    awesome! that fixed it. Thanks!

    I was trying to find the settings in the mysql and apache settings. I found it in the wordpress admin page.

    Glad you figured it out :)
    Usually, when we just say "admin" - it refers to the WP admin panel (we are WP support forum, aren't we?)
