    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?

    here is the site
    (the wordpress site looks a litte funky here because the paths to some of the images are releflect when it will live and on the top level of the site)..

    Thanks for any feedback


    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.

    Hope this helps.


    Of course! That’s it. I knew it must have been something small like that.
    Thanks so much!!!
