Problem loading (uploading?) Thematic default stylesheets

    Hi,

    I'm relatively new to WordPress and this is my first time using Thematic. I've just had a great time building up a child theme on my local MAMP server. However, when I loaded thematic and the child theme to the website, the @imports of css stopped working.

    I just re-downloaded and uploaded a fresh version of Thematic to the website, but it appears that all the CSS files I need are inaccessible. The style directory is here: http://aporiatheater.com/wp-content/themes/thematic/library/styles/ - the first few (18px through Default) load, but the ones I'm calling give me a 404. However, when I download them directly from the FTP, they open fine in my text editor.

    I'm sure it's something very simple, but I'm stumped. Any ideas? I'll continue to play around and post if I figure it out, but if anyone has had experience with this before, I'd be extremely grateful for the help.

    Thanks!
    Alec

    Also, for what it's worth, here's the beginning of my style.css:

    /*
    Theme Name: Aporia Theater
    Theme URI: www.alecturnbull.net
    Description: A theme for Aporia Theater
    Author: Alec Turnbull
    Author URI: http://www.alecturnbull.net/
    Template: thematic
    Version: 1.0
    Tags: Thematic

    /* Reset browser defaults */
    @import url('../themes/thematic/library/styles/reset.css');

    /* Apply basic typography styles */
    @import url('../thematic/library/styles/typography.css');

    /* Apply a basic layout */
    @import url('../thematic/library/layouts/2c-l-fixed.css');

    /* Apply basic image styles */
    @import url('../themes/thematic/library/styles/images.css');

    /* Prepare theme for plugins */
    @import url('../themes/thematic/library/styles/plugins.css');
    */

    Fixed the obviously wrong CSS links that themselves were changed as I was playing around with it...not a fix. An ugly cut-and-past of all imported styles DOES work, but I lose a lot of the flexibility / point of thematic that way.

  3. /* Reset browser defaults */
    @import url('../thematic/library/styles/reset.css');
    
    /* Apply basic typography styles */
    @import url('../thematic/library/styles/typography.css');
    
    /* Apply a basic layout */
    @import url('../thematic/library/layouts/2c-l-fixed.css');
    
    /* Apply basic image styles */
    @import url('../thematic/library/styles/images.css');
    
    /* Apply default theme styles and colors */
    @import url('../thematic/library/styles/default.css');
    
    /* Prepare theme for plugins */
    @import url('../thematic/library/styles/plugins.css');

    just copied from mine, but yours looks exactly the same. except that you aren't calling the default sheet. you have probably already tried this but delete everything off the live server, install thematic from the dash and try again? or maybe zip up your child theme and install it from the dash? sorry i am stumped.

  4. @alecwt: This is what I have, for instance, in my child theme style.css (unchanged from the default) -
    @import url('../thematic/library/styles/reset.css');

    Is this the link that's not working for you as well?

    Thanks for the help. I'd actually been uploading Thematic directly via FTP - clearing out the old versions and installing a new one from the dash fixed whatever was going on.

  6. Hi alecwt,

    This sounds like it could have been a file ownership / permissions issue. Check your FTP client and see if you can set ownership and permissions for files and directories. Also look to the codex for some general file permissions information:
