    Question converted site to WP blog, not working out

    Hi. I'm hoping someone can help me with what went wrong here.

    I had to create a wordpress blog from an existing site. I was waiting for godaddy access to create a database, so in the mean time I created the blog on my personal site, saltyart.com/blog and it came out okay.

    I just got access, created a database, updated wp-config
    with new details, and moved the files over to the site the blog belongs to but it’s not lining up correctly in any browser but Chrome.

    Now the blog looks okay on the saltysite in both FF and chrome. I copied the theme folder over exactly to the site it belongs to, olinelegalsteroids.com/blog and it's all broken.

    I ran the W3 validator on the css and fixed its errors but

    nothing I do seems to fix the problem.

    Any idea what went wrong? Thank you for any assistance.

    Not that this is your issue (quick & easy to find out), but I've done what you did a few times, and I always check for relative urls but most of the times it's been a url issue within wp/db...so dump the below in the head of your functions file [with your url info of course]:

    Code:
    update_option('siteurl','http://example.com/blog');
    update_option('home','http://example.com/blog');
    That has always cleared it up almost instantly for me...be sure and remove it pronto, btw.
