stylesheet.css seemingly being ignored


Guest

Recommended Posts

I recently installed 2.3.3 and am having problems with the catalog and admin screens. After much searching, I have concluded that the stylesheet is being ignored. We can even make changes in it which do not reflect back to the catalog nor admin screens.

 

Is there some setting or ? which can cause this action.

 

Please help and thanks in advance!

catalog and admin use different stylesheets.

the problem is more likely to be incorrect jquery locations.

 

Thanks for trying; but I do not know what would correct jquery location. BTW, I installed the same exact code on another website which had never had OSC and the screens were just fine and used the stylesheet. And, the jquery locations should be the same between the two sites.

 

The website that has the problem did have an earlier version of OSC (2.2RC!) which was removed before install of 2.2.3. Why did it decide to not use the stylesheet like the pristene site?

 

Thanks for any additional help!

Typically, the loss of stylesheet formatting is caused by an incorrect path as defined in the two configure.php files.

Many of the styles are not controlled by the stylesheet but by jquery ui, click on basics for 2.3+ design in my signature.

Have a look in ext/jquery/ui/redmond and you will find all the jquery css files.

Thanks for the reply. However, I have no idea what to look for since I installed 2.3.3 on two websites. One looks fine and the other does not. I have checked the configure files on both sites and they are identical except for the database URLs.

Thanks for trying.

URL to broken site is... ?

Thanks for your help! I am at my wits end with this.

The URL to the broken site is www.ventureclubs.org/catalog and the "identical" site that works just fine is www.mgs.cc/catalog

 

Thank you so very much!

I'm getting a 500 error trying to look at any of your CSS files in the ext/ directory. By any chance did you give 777 permissions on this directory? Many servers won't allow that. Try changing back to 755 permissions.

Most likely the .htaccess files in /ext/ and /images/

stopping the server from reading them.

 

Try deleting the .htaccess file in /ext/ and reload the site to see if it makes a difference.

The ext directory already has 755 and all of the .css files have 644. I have not changed the permissions on any of the ext directories nor files. And, these permissions are the same in the www.mgs.cc/catalog and that catalog looks great.

 

Thanks for the try! Now what?

THANK YOU! That did the trick! Now I can get on with customizing the layout.

 

Thanks again,
