I am transfering an html site to wordpress.
I built the wordpress site a folder on the FTP called “WordPress”.
I tried to swap our the html site for the wordpress site. I put the old site in a folder called html, then I took all the wordpress files out of the “wordpress” folder so they would be on the top level of the site.
I then made sure that any paths I had put into the code reflected the new path (top level).
When I make the transfer, the site is not reading the style.css file. Any ideas of why this might be happening?
Did you change the WordPress/Site addresses in the WordPress settings? If those settings still have /wordpress after the domain dynamic links to files (such as the stylesheet) will be incorrect as they no longer exist where WordPress thinks they do.
