Support » Localhost Installs » Site looks wrong when viewed externally

  • Resolved cdilla


    I’ve been trying to get a wordpress installation on my own computer (a sheevaplug) such that it can be viewed by the world at large.

    The domain I am using to point to it is which points to my routers WAN IP address. Static pages show just fine.

    Internally, on my home LAN, after adding to my hosts file, I can view and manage the wordpress installation fine. But externally, people are telling me the formatting is not right. They see the banner and the post text and images but everything is left aligned.

    I have two questions.
    What have I got wrong for this to be happening.

    How can I test the external view of my site from my own LAN?

    If you have time to help please have a look at my site

    All assistance is appreciated.

  • I checked your site there is a css problem everything is aligned left because there is no style.css file is loading by server please re-check your css file. Make sure that it is on right directory.

    Thank you for taking a look.
    I’ve done a bit more searching and have made some tweaks to my domain redirection setup. I think it might have been the use of frames (to maintain the domain url in the location bar) that caused the problem.

    It would be great if you take another peek and see whether it looks good to you now.

    I checked your site and now it is fine working correctly.

    Excellent, thanks for your help.

    I’m going to flag resolve.
