[resolved] style.css not working (4 posts)

    I can't seem to get the stylesheet for my custom theme working. I've tried both absolute and relative linking and I refresh the browser using CTRL + F5. I've also disabled off varnish cache using .htaccess.


    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    The link href should be the full absolute URL to the stylesheet. Something like:

    <link href="http://myserver.mydomain.com/wp-content/themes/urbanwords/style.css" media="all" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">

    If you paste the href into your browser's address bar and hit return, you should see the stylesheet code in the browser window. For example, here's one I did earlier:


    If your stylesheet doesn't show up you need to check all the URL parts to find out which bit is wrong.

    Couple of other things to check:

    1. Your stylesheet is called style.css
    2. The proper comment block appears at the top of the stylesheet

    Good luck.

    the code to call the style.css of a theme would generally be:

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="<?php bloginfo( 'stylesheet_url' ); ?>" />

    (assuming that you followed the standard folder and file structure)

    Thanks for the help both of you.
    The style works properly with the following <link> code:

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="<?php bloginfo( 'stylesheet_url' ); ?>" />
