No styles showing up in the UI
« on: November 07, 2012, 04:59:53 AM »
Hallo,

I did a fresh install of roundcube 0.8.2. Everything's working fine. But the UI display is without any styles, just text and buttons in a  distorted order (menus show up beneath the messages etc). I don't get any error message. I tried different things but to no avail. One thing I discovered is that, when I configure roundcube to write error messages on the screen and provoke error messages by changing permissions to some folders, the GUI styles show up with the error messages in the background. But if there is no display of error messages in the background the styles are disappearing as well.

I would appreciate any helpful hint, thanks!

edit: I wanted to add, that I tried different browsers (chromium, firefox, midori, arora) always with the same result

What are the errors that are showing up?

In regular use there are no error messages at all and there are no styles. If I "provoke" error messages by changing folder permissions the styles appear in front of the error messages (they report the wrong folder permissions). If I change the permissions again, the error messages and the styles disappear again.

I can't tell anything from the screenshots, are the links to the css file correct when you have errors off?

Thanks for your responses. I don't know how to check that. Where do I have to look for them?

The only change I did between the two screenshots is, that I changed the permissions of the log directory, which results in a display of the error messages and as a "side effect" the display of the styles which where absent before.

You'd need to check the html source to check if the stylesheet links are correct.

they seem to be correct:
Code: [Select]
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="skins/classic/common.css?s=1351830385" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="skins/classic/mail.css?s=1351830385" />

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="plugins/jqueryui/themes/classic/jquery-ui-1.8.18.custom.css?s=1351830391">

Any errors in the browser console when the style isn't showing?

From what we've established so far the skin files are in the correct place, the links to the files are correct and there is no js or php errors. Without being able to see it myself I can't really be of much more help.
