I setup my new theme last night, gave it a test drive, and everything was working as it should be. So I was quite surprised to see my site not working properly this morning. Turns out that everything was working fine because I was logged into the system, but as an ‘un-logged’ visitor it wasn’t.
Every time I clicked on one of my stories it would be displayed as a ‘jigsaw puzzle’ with no background image, sidebar moved to the bottom… everything just went ‘wonky.’
This morning I discovered the reason, turns out the box I checked in the options menu that required visitors to be logged in to leave a comment was causing a conflict with the theme I chose. So the remedy was simple, I unchecked the box and now my site (and theme) is working correctly 🙂 Glad I caught that early and I’m happy with the theme I chose.
