I hope this is the right forum for my question. I installed WordPress on the free host x10hosting, and everything seems to work fine except when I try to install a custom theme. The theme is not displaying properly at all, and I assume the css is not being rendered by the web server, I tried adding an .htaccess file as advice from a google search, and messed around with that but it doesn't seem to be doing anything, I'm not even sure if it could make a difference. Does anyone know why the theme (css web server rendering) would not be displaying properly?

btw - CSS doesn't render on the web server, it renders in the web browser – warren Sep 25 '09 at 7:14

O my, it seems I forgot to change the file permissions of the theme's directory. Got it!
