Problem in rewriting URL in Apache

Post by wrt2surabhi » Mon Apr 18, 2011 5:48 am

mod_rewrite is turned on.

htaccess.txt has already been changed to .htaccess

Turning on search engine friendly URLs distorts the complete design of the website.

Need help and want to know the right procedure to get rid of this problem.

Any assistance would be highly appreciated.

If anybody has a solution please post.

try changing the template and see if it still happens, if it doesnt then check the url of css and images in the index file.

if this happens only with your current template and works fine with other template then you can attach the theme index file and someone will be able to help you out. But you first need to check if this happens only with this template or all templates. if it happens with all templates then it is not template related problem.

check how the files and images are linked, you will find it in the index.php pf the template, or post the index file and people can help.

or you can even send the code for one link,

should be something like
<?php echo $this->baseurl ?>/templates/template name /css/layout.css

see if it is in the same format.

I had the same issue. It turned out that my images were in the wrong index file. After I changed it everything looked normal.
