    I'm not sure really how to describe this, but when i changed my original theme to my own personalized one, I got a bit of a mess in my admin page. When I click on 'Presentation,' it says 'Current Theme' and under it: Kubrick. Version: 1.5 Author: Michael Heilemann Author URI: http://binarybonsai.com/ Kubrick v1.5 http://binarybonsai.com/kubrick/ This theme was designed and built by Michael Heilemann, whose blog you will find at http://binarybonsai.com/ The CSS, XHTML and design is released under GPL: http://www.opensource.org/licenses/gpl-license.php *** REGARDING IMAGES *** All CSS that involves the use of images, can be found in the 'index.php' file. ... and goes on and on. It looks as if my CSS code was somehow put in the admin page, and I don't get how on earth I did that. Any suggestions??

    1. Make sure your theme's stylesheet header is set up correctly:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development#Theme_Style_Sheet

    (There's should be no HTML used within the header for hyperlinks, etc.)

    2. Make sure you're uploading the theme templates/css in plain text i.e. ASCII through ftp.

    Yes.
    It's a problem with the very first character which should be a /
    It may look like a / but the browser is seeing something different. Consequently, the css structure fails to happen.

    -Copy your css.
    -On your machine, paste it into NOTEPAD. Do NOT use anything else - not Dreamweaver, not GoLive, nothing. Notepad only.
    -Copy everything, then go paste it here:
    http://flumpcakes.co.uk/css/optimiser/
    -Run the Optimiser
    -Copy the optimised CSS back into a new Notepad file
    -Copy this: (highlight it and the line shooting right will copy)
    /*
    Theme Name: WordPress Default
    Theme URI: http://wordpress.org/
    Description: The default WordPress theme based on the famous <a href="http://binarybonsai.com/kubrick/">Kubrick</a>.
    Version: 1.5
    Author: Michael Heilemann
    Author URI: http://binarybonsai.com/
    */

    Paste that at the top of the optimised css, save, upload.
    That should work.
