I’m working with a site hosted by yahoo web hosting, and it’s a mess.
I’m using WordPress, the theme I created works great on my local pc, and my mediatemple account.
However, when I move to Yahoo server, everything goes wrong.
* CSS z-index isn’t working
* cannot navigate, results in page errors
* there is a difference between using http://domain.com and http://www.domain.com
* site results are not reflective of actual code.
It’s like I’m in a bad dream, lol.
It seems that Yahoo web hosting is not flexible, and they want you to use their software to dev a site.
just looking to see if anyone else has experienced working with Yahoo
I used Yahoo Web Hosting ONCE. I too was trying to use a custom theme in WordPress and discovered that because of their limitations with WordPress, it simply could not be done.
Now what I did notice was that Yahoo offers WordPress that they have integrated with your hosting plan. That’s the one that’s a little limited. However, if you can manage to login via FTP, you can upload and install WordPress manually. I can’t remember if I tried it or not since I got a new host after realizing I was limited with Yahoo. But maybe you can try and see if that works.
you can use yahoo hosting BUT no htaccess file which means no custom permalinks. I have a site up on there right now and it is just horrible hosting. They do have good tech support though. I would recommend you use something else. The integrated wordpress is horrible also.
