    last night I installed studiopress genesis and lifestyle and now my blog looks like this

    http://www.fungamesroom.com

    I removed them both and tried going back to the wordpress default, but it obviously didnt go back to the same.

    how can I fix that?

    also, oddly enough we use wordpress at work for our websites as well, and when you go look at themes and get the little picture of what it looks like, mine were all empty (even after removing the studiopress themes.

    I need help

    I should be able to view the twentyten style sheet in my browser.

    //www.fungamesroom.com/wp-content/themes/twentyten/style.css

    This is the response I get:

    403 Permission Denied
    You do not have permission for this request /wp-content/themes/twentyten/style.css

    Could you have a directory permission error(s)?

    ok,

    little above my head, I follow a bit, but what should I set the permissions too, and just do it to the css or the folder?

    ???

    thanks

    It appears that you have solved the issue, but when I last looked, both the uploads path and the themes directory paths were not accessible to the web. That probably means that the permission on the /wp-content directory were too strict, or the permissions on the /themes and /uploads directories were too strict. General rule of thumb: directories 0755. files 0644. You may encounter a permissions change on your first upload, but that's pretty well documented.

    Some references, if you need them:

    Best wishes!

    HI Clayton James

    thanks much, yep we figured it out, it was a permissions change after the upload that I wasnt aware of, once we changed them back it worked great.

    thanks
