    I have a home web server running on a computer that is being used for nothing but the server, useing the local host address on that computer i can see the theme i have for worpress just fine, but when i connect (useing another computer) to the actual web address of the server http://www.somecallmetim.homeip.net all i see is the text of the theme, it isnt even formated.

    I am useing ie 7 and i have everything on with my server that i know of.

    I am useing wamp as the server.

    Anyone know what is happening, i also tried loading several other themes and have gotten the same results, i can view them locally but not over the internet.

    dont use localhost for ANYTHING if you want the site to display properly when you arent local

    and PLEASE use the search.

    sounds more like a network issue than a theme issue.

    Nap, everything linked to is under localhost as whooami says. This includes the stylesheet, which explains the plain text. Does this homeip service allow URL screening/forwarding? Might be worth looking into.

    Thats exactly what that is for.. specifically for ppl with dynamic ips that want to do their own hosting gigs.

    This is a networking issue, not a theme isssue, btw, and I think themesbycal's reference was to the area that this post is in.. It happens all of the time unfortunatly - so much so that I often wonder why there are even seperate areas.
