Keeps going back to default template (12 posts)

    I just changed my blog from roadlessunraveled.com/blog to taking out the /blog. Now, for some reason, the default template keeps coming back and it looks all screwed up. I go back into the cpanel and get the current theme. It's happened a few times already.

    Any idea?

    My guess - errors #4 and on are breaking your page.

    Thank you. Hopefully that did it, I deleted the cache folder and updated the permalinks. It says something about including a redirection in the .htacess to your previous address, is there directions of where to do that?

    Out of frustration I've deleted the default theme, hoping that will solve it for the time being.

    Yep, now that I took out the default theme it's blank.

    I put the default theme back so at least it's not blank but it keeps going back to the default theme even when I request a different theme as the default. Ugh!

    Paths, permissions and db is what I keep wondering about, and none of that is easy to check/communicate in this medium.

    When you refreshed/updated permalinks did you get a box with the rewrite rules written in it at the bottom of the page? If so, you need to cut and paste that into your .htaccess.

    I didn't notice anything like that but I could have potentially just not seen it. It seems ok now and I haven't touched it in hours.

    It's still screwed up although now I decided to use the default theme because it just wasn't worth the agrivation but I have someone designing me a new theme soon and I don't want it to keep switching to the default.

    Careful, lotsa errors:

    Looking at your 'supposedly_clean' theme up now and I don't see anything else unusual. My Apache and php versions are the same as yours (no problem there). I am disappointed the current theme uses @import for your style sheet, but I imagine with all the themes you've tested that can't always be the case. (For reference, I recommend a link, it gets more precedence, e.g.; <link rel="stylesheet" title="supposedly_clean" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>" type="text/css" media="all" /> ).

    The only other thing I can suggest is having http://install4free.wordpress.com/ do a new install. If they run across the same issue they will have the access necessary to troubleshoot/address it.
