[resolved] Theme CSS not displaying (3 posts)

    WP newbie here, having a confusing issue:

    I installed WP 3.5.1 on a win2k8 server and everything went smoothly. I installed a new theme (Theron Lite) and everything seemed to be going well as long as I accessed the website on the local machine.

    As soon as I tried to access the website from anywhere but the localhost, I noticed that the site would load without any of the theme components visible (text only). The site is http://sophia.proctr.cba.ua.edu/proctr/

    I've searched around and read that it could be due to a couple things:
    1) The file/folder permissions are incorrect
    2) The ABSPATH definition (currently '/') is incorrect

    I've attempted to follow both of the above proposed solutions as follows:

    1) I tried editing the permissions to allow the folder/files to be read/execute by 'everyone'. Currently the properties window shows this.

    2) I've attempted to modify the wp-load.php file ABSPATH definition from

    define( 'ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__) . '/' );


    define( 'ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__) . '//MyHostName.edu/Folder' );

    But that broke the entire website and nothing loaded at all.

    I'm confused, does anyone know what stupid mistake I'm making?

    WP seems to be looking for your site at localhost...set the url in wp dashboard general settings and or look how to include the absolute path on your server...

    http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/sophia.proctr.cba.ua.edu/proctr/ shows localhost...

    That fixed it, thanks very much for your help.

    If anyone is wondering where you go to make the changes - check the admin panel>settings>general>wordpress URL
