    The css (stylesheet) file needs to be accessible via HTTP. View the source of your index file and see what it shows for the css item. it should include a URL style link. For example:

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

    the "bloginfo('stylesheet_url')" is the part that actually grabs your stylesheet url (based on whatever default you have defined) and inserts it in the HTML header for each page.

    Hey jevenrix!
    You will not get more help by posting your problem in many threads. Keep with the one you started - this one!
    If you get no answer for a couple of days, you may "bump" your thread, by "replying" something, like "No one?"

    Also you must supply more information on how your site is set up.

    truenorth, you're either using or http://localhost as the blog and WordPress addresses (Options > General), and this is causing other PCs on the network to look "locally," that is at themselves, for the file(s). Instead, use the IP your PC is assigned on your local network (usually something like

    Options > General (WordPress admin), as noted above. It'll be your WordPress and Blog addresses.
