    Just got into wordpress and i cant seem to figure out why my theme wont load when i try to view the address from a different computer? The computer it is hosting from loads the page just fine through localhost and also the IP address. Any suggestions?

    Have you tried the using the default theme and seeing if you get the same problem? It might help to determine whether this is a theme issue or something else.

    I think i might have found the problem but i dont know how to fix it. It looks like its only loading fully from localhost, but if i go to a different computer and use the ip it only loads text, if i try to add a comment it automatically changes the address from http://x.x.x.x/blogname/ to http://localhost/blogname/ and fails to connect?

    That sounds more like a server/network problem to me.

    Out of my area of expertise, I'm afraid, I know just enough about network configuration to be dangerous. However, I've added a couple of tags to the topic in the hopes attracting the attention of one of the network gurus.

    Visit Settings -> General and change the URL values from localhost to a real address or resolvable name.

    Every computer in the world thinks that it is named localhost...

    well somehow when i changed the localhost to the ip it changed the name it was looking for now it is saved and keeps looping to login or page not found because its redirecting to a name that doesnt exist?

    Does anyone know the file that is configured when you are logged into you admin account and you change settings?

    That would be your mysql database.

    So out of curiosity, what did you specify for the URL values at Settings -> general?

    If it needs to be corrected, have a look at Changing_The_Site_URL for some options.

    well i went to change the localhost url to the ip of my computer, but when i did it i made it x.x.x.x/spydan instead of x.x.x.x/spydaink so its looking for spydan everytime i try to login

    Ok so i got the admin page back loading. Thanks for the help with the mysql file. Now i still need to fix my original problem. It looks like the themes wont load from a different computer why you try to access the page?

    Sorry i jumped the gun. The site loads fine it must have been that the url was set to localhost. Thanks for the help.
