    Not sure if there was a setting or code I accidentally changed, but now my blog appears as attached instead of my normal, shiny template. Can anyone advise me on how to fix it?

    That screenshot is terrible but from the looks of it you must have done something with your CSS.

    Something is wrong with your css file, could be caused by hosting error or your browser. Clear your browser cache and try it again.

    If you're using a free template, and edited the footer portion that was copywrited, it may have affected the code in the template as there may be a portion that calls for that certain footer, if it is edited, it will purposefully mess up the template.

    Pull the initial CSS file out of the template you installed, or reinstall the template again.

    If you didn't already post that much content to your blog or if it's an autoblog:

    • Just redownload the WordPress files.
    • Reupload them to your server and set it up.
    • Then see if you still have the same problem.

    Another weird part is that if i log on to the admin dashboard then view my site, the layout looks fine.

    1:template problem
    2:css problem

    try:

    1: reload your website with CTRL + F5 IE or Shift + f5 if you are using chrome
    2: deactivate your template, delete it completely, re-install and activate
    3: disable all your plugins
    3: if you have any ads block addon installed. disable it. and clear cache
    4: may be something wrong with your browser, try in different browser.

    Deavtivate your template your CSS files got corrupted. If still the problem not solved delete the entire wordpress installation and install it again.

    Hope it helps.

    Looks like an issue with your CSS file. May I know i which file you have done mistakes. Nothing to worry, it will get fixed within seconds. Just let us know what file did you made changes by mistake ?

    Its your css, just reinstall it if your not good with the code. The admin makes different function calls than on regular pages so it might look fine in the admin panel but not the actual site.

    Uh, happened to few of my sites too. Are you using W3 Cache with CSS Minify enabled? It's having a bug and with CSS Minification the site isn't loading any CSS. Just disable CSS Minify in the W3 Cache. If you using any other caching plugin, then try disabling it. :)
