CMS & WordPress
Not sure if this is a XAMPP issue, theme issue or WordPress 3.3 issue, but I just uploaded my site to my live server from XAMPP, but the Dashboard is unusable. The CSS seems to be gone from it.
I did a search and found similar problems, but no real fix. I cleared my cache/cookies and that didn't help. Also, there are no plugins installed yet, so none to uninstall/deactivate.
Also, the URLs are correct in the database options file.
The site is [www] apptooth [dot]com (if that helps?)
Below is a screenshot:
it might be worth checking in Firebug (or Chrome Developer tools) under the Network tab to see if any files are missing (i.e. showing as Status: 404)
Thanks for the reply. Not familiar with that, could you elaborate a bit for me? What types of possible missing files would I be looking for?
If you're using Firefox you could install the Firebug extension. This will allow you to some debugging on your web pages.
See the following link for an example of what the Net Panel looks like in Firebug: [URL="http://getfirebug.com/wiki/index.php/File:Net_Panel.png"]http://getfirebug.com/wiki/index.php/File:Net_Panel.png
In here you might look for any files under the "All" filter that are coming up as a 404.
If you have a lot of files loading in, you might filter by CSS or JS for example.
If all files are being loaded in ok (Status 200, 302, 301, etc) then it might be a different cause.
Hit CTRL-SHIFT-J in Firefox, hit 'Clear', reload the page and paste the output of the error tool here if you don't understand what it says. Be sure to set the error console to 'Errors', instead of 'All'.
Problem solved! I ended up replacing the two folders: "wp-admin" and "wp-includes" from a fresh WordPress zip. That worked for me.
