    Hi John,

    thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.

    The reason for this seems to the URL rewriting that WP Super Cache performs.
    For example, it converts the URL of the TablePress default CSS file to
    http://static.larkin.net.au/wp-content/plugins/tablepress/css/default.min.css

    However, the server only returns a “404 Not found” error for that URL. If I however change the “static” at the beginning to “www”, the file is returned, as expected.

    The same happens for the WordPress core JS file http://static.larkin.net.au/wp-includes/js/comment-reply.min.js

    So, my assumption is that something in the WP Super Cache or server configuration (regarding the URL rewriting) is not set up properly.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Hi John,

    after taking another look at your pages, I’d actually like another suggestion (which is independent from the original issue):
    You are using TablePress tables for things that shouldn’t really be done with tables (that is, you are using them for visual and styling purposes, like a column layout).
    This is of course no problem, and it will work fine, but it is not necessarly the optimal case, and it’s against recommendations for modern webdesign, which say that tables should not be used for such visual/styling purposes, but to display tabular data only.

    Therefore, for most of your pages that use a TablePress table, you might want to consider a plugin like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/grid-columns/ which gives you a mechanism to follow that modern webdesign approach for creating a multi column layout.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Thank you Tobias for you excellent responses. I shall consider the recommended plug-in and reformat those tables.

    All the best with your studies,

    Best wishes

    John

    PS. I left some excellent feedback for your plug-in. ^_^
