    I have two blogs on ( and

    A couple of days ago – around the same time as the WordPress server problems – I noticed that both blogs were displaying ‘strangely’ (looking unformatted, all content displaying in a single column left justified). I checked other blogs (for example, and they ALL appear similarly unformatted.

    Even the log-in and admin pages appear unformatted.

    Note that this is only a problem on my (Vista) laptop computer. All blogs appear formatted just fine on my (XP) desktop.

    Any idea what could be causing this problem?

    Here’s what it looks like on the laptop:

    Green Travel in Palm Beach and Boca Raton, Florida

    The town of Palm Beach, Florida may be one of the richest communities in the United States (#26 per capita, if you believe Wikipedia), but money isn’t the only thing that’s Green down there.

    Your intrepid correspondent spent a long weekend braving the sun and surf (not to mention the crazies on I-95) to seek out some of the eco-friendly travel highlights in Palm Beach and its surrounding County.

    – The famous Breakers resort in Palm Beach not only maintains an organic herb & vegetable garden to supply its restaurants, it also runs a weekly Green Market (November to May) that gives employees access to fresh produce from local farms. Not content with just making a difference at the resort itself, two members of The Breakers’ executive purchasing team (Geoffrey Sagrans and Rick Hawkins) founded an independent, non-profit organization called Localeopia to match local Florida farmers and organic food producers with nearby chefs and restaurants. This locavore initiative not only gives customers fresher food, it also helps preserve farmland while cutting out the greenhouse gas pollution associated with transporting food cross country.

    – Palm Beach County contains numerous natural and wild areas. Some of the highlights include the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge (221 square miles of Everglades), a portion of the 110-mile LOST trail around Lake Okeechobee, the 90-acre Okeeheelee Nature Center in West Palm Beach and the 325-acre MacArthur Beach State Park where you can go kayaking among the mangroves.

    – Yes, it sometimes seem like everyone is driving either a Bentley or a Ferrari (neither of which are known for their MPGs), but you’ll also see plenty of joggers and bicyclists taking advantage of Palm Beach’s flat terrain and well-developed trail system.

    – You can get a little tipsy in style while still maintaining your eco-cred at the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach thanks to organic cocktails like the Herb Garden Mojito served in The Restaurant.

    – The Boca Raton Resort & Club gained admission to Florida’s Green Lodging Program last year. In addition to expected eco-friendly programs (recycling, fluorescent light bulbs, use of Green cleaning products), the resort installed an electricity-saving energy management system and reclaims enough water to support 90% of all exterior landscaping!

    – Enjoy some peaceful contemplation at the Morikami Museum & Park in Delray Beach. The museum tells about the Japanese settlers who created a Floridian colony called Yamato in the early 20th Century. Paths lead visitors through 200-acres of gardens representing various eras in Japanese landscape design.

    – Pick up fresh and local fruits, vegetables, breads, pastries, plants and more at the West Palm Beach Greenmarket, open Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (October – April) at 2nd Street and Narcissus Avenue in Downtown West Palm Beach.

    Blog at Theme: Cutline by Chris Pearson.

    The blog I need help with is



    On the computer that is not displaying correctly, log out of entirely, completely dump the browser cache and cookies, shut down your browser.



    And just a suggestion, please, when you ask for help, it’s easier to see the blog in question via a live link or screenshot rather than dumping an entire post into your question. :)




    Thanks for pointing that out, tt. In both threads he mentions clearing history. Clearing history won’t do much. Clearing cache and cookies might.

    He also mentions the problem is with his laptop (not a mobile device), so if he is using it on a wireless network, it might be a router problem, requiring a router restart as well.



    I agree with you but we just seem to be going round and round in circles. :(



    Dear timethief and justjennifer,

    1) please know that I really do appreciate your efforts to solve the problem.

    2) I tried resetting my wireless router. That did not solve the problem.

    3) I did clear the cache and cookies (I have my Firefox browser set to clear those when I hit clear Everything), but that did not help.

    4) I’d love to post a screenshot, but I don’t know how to do that on this forum. If you tell me how to put an image/screenshot in the forum, I would be happy to do that.

    And yes, I did participate in two threads yesterday, but as my problem still persisted, I was trying again by starting my own thread today.

    Not sure what to try! It has to just be a problem on this computer since obviously the desktop is OK. I thought it might be a firewall issue, but I turned off the firewall and the problem was still there.

    Anything else I could disable / enable to try?


    CTRL+F5 see if that helps.

    What is your firefox version?

    What is the resolution?

    Press prtsc (next to f12) open up paint, save the file.

    Go to and upload the image.

    Attach the screenshot url to your next comment.


    Opps, Press prtsc (next to f12) open up paint, cntl+v to paste the image, save the file.



    Thanks for the explanation dreamsburned.

    I knew how to take a screenshot, but I did not know about

    Here is the tinypic URL –

    All the usual sidebar stuff is invisible because it shows up at the bottom of the screen now. Anyway, the screenshot should be enough to convince you that what I see is not what is supposed to appear.

    For reference, here is how the site appears –

    I have to run out, but I will check the forum later tonight or tomorrow morning in hopes someone has seen this problem before or know what might be causing it. All other (non-Wordpress) sites seem to display normally.


    Trying opening it in safe mode (all programs –> firefox, safe mode).

    You by any chance you any ad blockers like ad block plus?


    If that does work try: In your firefox browser, go to view -> Page Style -> Make sure basic page style is selected.



    Aaron, click here:

    You should see a big block of code starting with body{background:#fff;color:#333..

    Do you see that or something else?



    Dreamsburnred — I tried firefox safe mode. Did not make a difference.

    I do have ad block plus, but I’ve been using it for years.

    Basic page style is selected.

    Tellyworth – I do see the big block of code (all on one line) starting with body{background:#fff;color:#333;font:62.5% Georgia…

    So interestingly, now my blogs ( and appear normally –

    But the dashboard still seems all messed up / unformatted –

    So…very happy that the blogs themselves look OK!! Wish the dashboard looked ok too…

    Thanks to everyone for help + suggestions!
