I went this afternoon to log in to both the front and back end of my site for the first time in several weeks. A co-adminstrator had last evening edited an existing article. The article is fine with no errant code in it. The front end looks like it was designed back in the days of Internet 1.0 beta and I can not log in.
On the back end I can log in but when I get to the administrator page all the Joomla icons are missing (the block and the text only showing) and the menu does not work. If I edit an article the Save, Apply, etc. icons do not work. Article text is in HTML. My K2 modules appear to work correctly which gave me the necessary clue. It does not matter whether I am using Win IE or Firefox.
Digging around using Firebug Script I see, for back end, that the there were three errrors. I believe they trace back to the link portion of the PHP file in my browser window. The shortened code looks like this:
<link href="/.+/esi/",/"/x65/.../administrator/templates/khepri/favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/.+/esi\",\"\x65\.../administrator/modules/mod_k2_quickicons/tmpl/css/style.css" type="text/css" />
In other words the icon portion of the standard Khepri stylesheet is missing. The text missing is the "rel="stylesheet" portion of the CSS statement. Unfortunately I can not open the website browser from my Joomla backup to see what the full statement should be. Instead the index.php opens up in Dreamweaver.
A similar problem exists on the front end with the CSS statement being corrupted. You can view the site by clicking here
, preferrably in Firefox and using Firebug. It would appear to not be an issue with permissions as I tried that.
Any thoughts on how to repair this? I would much prefer to not reload from my saved backup as that is slightly out of date. If a selective restore from saved backup would be best I would like to use that. Problem then is which files do I restore?
Thank you in advance.
