  • Resolved solrosin


    For some odd reason, the TwentyTen theme doesn’t display correctly in Firefox 3.6 or Chrome, but works in Internet Explorer 8 fine. I’ve cleared my browers’ caches, restarted them multiple times, and I get the same result each and every time: A web site that looks like a throwback to the early ’90s. Something isn’t rendering correctly in WordPress, and I don’t know why that is. The site is at Any insights are appreciated.

    The problem is that your stylesheet isn’t loading. What you’re seeing is the completely unstyled output of TwentyTen.

    This could be completely off-base, but what happens if you take the question mark out of your site description?

    I changed it to not have a question mark, however, it’s still not styled.

    Yeah, it was a longshot.

    Anyway, the problem is that your stylesheet isn’t getting served to the browser – and I’m not sure why.

    It’s not a TwentyTen issue, though. To verify: what happens if you switch to another Theme? Do you get the same styled/unstyled output differences between browsers?

    Actually, it IS a TwentyTen issue. It works fine with Antisnews.

    OK, it was fooling me by working with one theme and not the other, as well as one browser and not the other. It turns out that adding the type “text/css” in the Apache default configuration magically fixes it. I wonder why IE grabbed it despite that, though?

    I’m having the same problem and i tried out your solution but it still didn’t work. I added

    AddType text/css .css

    to the httpd.config in the mime module section. I still get a weird looking TwentyTen homepage the css style sheet is not rendered by the browsers (chrome, IE, Safari).

    I later found that it’s needless to even add the above code because the

    TypesConfig /private/etc/apache2/mime.types

    code already included the Mime for css.

    Now, I’m stuck. You can view the page by following this link:


    By the way it only displays correctly on any browser on my IMAC ( the server is hosted on my computer) but when i try to view the page from a client browser it doesn’t render correctly.
