All themes only working on Frontpage???

Post by psiege » Thu Jun 06, 2013 11:38 pm

I upgraded to 1.7 and sometime after that, any template I try only shows the templated site on the frontpage, all other pages do not use the template. The pages look like the CSS has been ripped out. Any suggestions on what might be causing this?

Funny thing is my static pages kind of work, images are still dropped tho.

The site is http://www.pcdoctor-community.com

Thanks!
Chris

Ok, so using Firebug I've been able to determine that my URLs for stylesheets and the like are not working beyond the frontpage of the blog. If I manually update this to point directly to the stylesheet, it works. Any ideas on what could be causing these to not work?

Thanks!

FYI, I finally figured it out. This was the result of previously reported bugs. I upgraded from 1.5.5 to 1.7 and the Base URL configuration setting was cleared after having changed a different setting within the configuration and clicking save. This should be fixed.

It appears that it's a known issue, called out here:
