    Hello there

    I somehow have managed to instal wordpress on my machine using MAMP, and it generally seems to have worked.

    I get a webpage on Localhost in my browser that’s stored on my computer. I’ve used wordpress for blogging and it definitely looks as the normal wordpress site looks, but when I click further on this page i.e the link for the Dashboard, it looks like something is a miss and none of the links work. I shows it in what I can only describe as a really rubbish website format, all fancy boxes, shading, fonts, links just appear in a list but nothing actually works, it looks like lots of blue underlined ‘links’ that aren’t indeed so!

    I’m really terribly sorry but I’m an interior designer not a website builder, but the ‘famous 5 minute instal’ gave me some unnecessary confidence that I could perhaps tackle this, not so sure now!

    If anyone has the foggiest about any of the above, or even the courage to attempt to explain it to me, I’d be very thankful!

    And that’s before I attempt to tackle changing a theme …. Sheesh!!!!!

    Okay the dashboard is appearing in HTML. Any ideas why?

    Thank you!

    Try re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.
