    You really need to contact the developers of Instant WP about this. We don’t support it here.

    Really? There’s no way to tell your theme it’s looking in the wrong folder for images, etc?

    Well, what you’re describing sounds like an issue with Instant WP’s configuration rather than an issue with the theme but it might help if you told us what theme you are using and where you downloaded it from.

    Gotcha. I’ll go ask the maker of Instant WordPress (I’ve got a custom theme anyway). I appreciate the response – I’d been hoping this would be one of those questions where you’d just direct me to the right codex file. Alas.

    I imported my site,…
    …For example, for images, it’s trying to load http://127.0.0.1:4001/wp-content/themes/my_theme/design/header_logo-left.jpg

    If importing your site includes importing the sites existing database, then I would assume that if the site you imported the database from wasn’t installed in a sub-directory named “wordpress”, then that would mean that the old path to the image (as in the example above) would not contain the sub-directory.

    Instant WordPress serves WordPress from /htdocs/wordpress. That’s why it’s looking for WordPress in http://127.0.0.1:4001/wordpress/

    One thing that quickly comes to mind, is that the database you imported probably doesn’t contain the sub-directory “wordpress” in any of the URL’s.
