Support » Fixing WordPress » Dashboard Taken Over By Blog Stylesheet

  • Resolved robokira


    Hi! After I upgraded to WordPress version 2.2, my dashboard started acting weird. It’s been taken over by my blog’s stylesheet, and I can’t figure out how to fix it! Here’s a screenshot of what my dashboard looks like:

    It also happens when I try to create a new category:

    I viewed the source of the dashboard to see what stylesheet it’s pulling, but it’s correctly pointing to:

    I tried reuploading all of my wp-admin files (read somewhere that it might help), but that didn’t make a difference. The only other things I can think of is that I have the Akismet and the Hello Dolly plugins installed. I also had to modify my .htaccess file because I wanted to change my permalinks from the default to a date-link instead. I had to modify the .htaccess file because my website also came with MS Frontpage installed. I had to change all of the .htaccess files in my site to this:

    Options +FollowSymlinks
    # -FrontPage-
    IndexIgnore .htaccess */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*
    <Limit GET POST>
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    allow from all
    <Limit PUT DELETE>
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    AuthUserFile /home/ccsyhqkj/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.pwd
    AuthGroupFile /home/ccsyhqkj/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.grp
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    And that’s all I can think of. My site uses PHP version 4.4.4 and MySQL version 4.1.21. I didn’t use any other programs to install wordpress.

    Can anyone help me to fix my dashboard?

  • What happens when you change themes, say to the WordPress Default 1.6 theme?

    This is probably a mod_security problem. A lot of people have had that problem after upgrading to 2.2
    The server issues a 403 error and searches for a page to display the error. When not found, a 404 error page will be shown, and that is what you see.
    Please refer to this thread for a solution:

    When I changed to WordPress Default 1.6, my unique layout CSS still overrode my dashboard. So maybe it has something to with my own coding?

    macbrink – I’m looking through that thread, thank you for posting it. I’ll let you know if it helps me or not! (I don’t really know where to find my http.conf file, which, according to that thread, is all I need to fix this problem…)

    Actually, changing themes doesn’t seem to affect my site at all. I did specifically code my website to work with my cupcake layout, but after switching themes, my 404 pages still come out in the cupcake layout. Could this be the problem?

    Ack, sorry, adding

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterInheritance Off

    to my .htaccess file seems to have fixed the problem. 🙂 Thanks for the help everyone!
