    I’m not sure really how to describe this, but when i changed my original theme to my own personalized one, I got a bit of a mess in my admin page. When I click on ‘Presentation,’ it says ‘Current Theme’ and under it: Kubrick. Version: 1.5 Author: Michael Heilemann Author URI: http://binarybonsai.com/ Kubrick v1.5 http://binarybonsai.com/kubrick/ This theme was designed and built by Michael Heilemann, whose blog you will find at http://binarybonsai.com/ The CSS, XHTML and design is released under GPL: http://www.opensource.org/licenses/gpl-license.php *** REGARDING IMAGES *** All CSS that involves the use of images, can be found in the ‘index.php’ file. … and goes on and on. It looks as if my CSS code was somehow put in the admin page, and I don’t get how on earth I did that. Any suggestions??

  • 1. Make sure your theme’s stylesheet header is set up correctly:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development#Theme_Style_Sheet

    (There’s should be no HTML used within the header for hyperlinks, etc.)

    2. Make sure you’re uploading the theme templates/css in plain text i.e. ASCII through ftp.

    Yes.
    It’s a problem with the very first character which should be a /
    It may look like a / but the browser is seeing something different. Consequently, the css structure fails to happen.

    -Copy your css.
    -On your machine, paste it into NOTEPAD. Do NOT use anything else – not Dreamweaver, not GoLive, nothing. Notepad only.
    -Copy everything, then go paste it here:
    http://flumpcakes.co.uk/css/optimiser/
    -Run the Optimiser
    -Copy the optimised CSS back into a new Notepad file
    -Copy this: (highlight it and the line shooting right will copy)
    /*
    Theme Name: WordPress Default
    Theme URI: http://wordpress.org/
    Description: The default WordPress theme based on the famous <a href="http://binarybonsai.com/kubrick/">Kubrick</a>.
    Version: 1.5
    Author: Michael Heilemann
    Author URI: http://binarybonsai.com/
    */

    Paste that at the top of the optimised css, save, upload.
    That should work.
