Support » Themes and Templates » Theme / CSS not rendering in remote browser

    I am stumped.

    I have installed WP on IIS 7 everything works and renders fine on the local machine. However when I access the site from a remote browser (I’ve tried IE, Chrome, FF, Safari)the theme / CSS won’t render.

    I’ve searched around and I haven’t found anything that has helped yet.

    Could this be a file / directory permission issue?

    That’s because we don’t have access to localhost.
    When referencing sources in URLs, try to use

    /wp-content/themes/yourThemename/etcetera/yourfile.png

    instead of

    http://localhost/wp-content/themes...

    Huh?

    Could you explain how to correct this?

    It sounds like an issue with your local server, rather than WordPress.

    I fixed this.

    As it turns out, you need to set the “WordPress Address (URL)” to the website address in my case this was the public IP address of my WP install.

    Go to SETTINGS> GENERAL ……then set “WordPress Address (URL)” to the required Public URL or Public IP address if temporary.
