    I am hosting with godaddy linux and installed wordpress the other day. Everything was going fine with the default linking but when i switched to more SEO friendly permalinks it seems that the css files could not be accessed resulting in a site with the formatting messed up.

    After changing permalinks to /%content%/%postname%/ it creates a .htaccess file as follows

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    I have left the site (efficientspend.com) in all its glory... without css for all to view...

    Anyone with similiar issues or knows what I am doing wrong would be a great help.

    I did a View Source on your homepage to find the URL of your stylesheet. It is http://www.efficientspend.com/wp-content/themes/guzel/style.css

    When I paste that in my browser, I see a very short stylesheet that ends with an import statement, that is trying to import the file that has the styles. The line is @import url("style.php");

    Ten to one you need to put in a full pathname to style.php. If style.php is in your theme folder, try changing the line in the stylesheet to
    @import url("/wp-content/themes/guzel/style.php");
    You will need to refresh - see if that resolves it. If that is not the location of your themes folder, put in the location that is.
