Partial blog display over internet, full for local network (4 posts)

    Greetings, and thanks in advance for any suggestions. I'll make the obligatory note that I'm a linux/webhosting newbie.

    Problem: WordPress installed fine, connects with the MySQL database, and displays and works functionally within my local area network (I'm hosting on a home computer behind a router). When I try to look at the blog from a work computer (outside of my network), I get only the text part of the blog (no themes, etc.). (see this at http://www.yardapple.com:8080 load time might be a little long).

    Troubleshooting: I placed a stock standard html website (nothing more complicated than a few pictures) up, and it displays fine over the internet. I've edited my hosts file to include lines linking my domain name with localhost ( (suggested by a wordpress support topic). I have a similar problem getting a mediawiki to appear outside of the local network.

    Technical info: WordPress running on apache 2.0, under a Fedora 4 installation of linux.

    Thank you for your time.

    By default, WordPress sends everything out over port 80. Your site is only accessible over port 8080. The them you are using is looking at http://www.yardapple.com/wp-content/themes/default/style.css but it should be looking at http://www.yardapple.com:8080/wp-content/themes/default/style.css

    Makes complete sense - what is the easiest way to correct that problem (besides switching to a provider that doesn't block 80)? Is there a way I can alter where it looks for themes (or other data for that matter).

    Try going into the theme and editing it to point to the port you're using.
