    i installed wordpress on a local server but my theme only shows on localhost. when i url to that location from another pc, the layout does not look like the theme selected. it's just general flat white.

    i setup a wordpress account at reckless2k2.wordpress.com and got the same results despite changing around to a few different themes. is there a simple tweak i'm missing.

    thanks for any help.

    my theme only shows on localhost.

    Because when you installed that is the address wordpress determined your url to be.

    well my wordpress page is

    http://reckless2k2.wordpress.com

    my local server install was using the generic default theme. i will look at the posts and maybe it will help with the local server install but what is the excuse for my actual wordpress.com page?

    like i said, i've noticed that some http://username.wordpress.com sites show a theme and some don't. mine happens to not show the theme on other machines.

    i will look into the local server install info you posted. thanks.

    umm...i looked at the links and they are just the general install links. i used and followed them. what does that have to do with my theme only showing up on the local machine?
