Joomla 1.5 has wrong path for css, js files – edit your configuration.php file

I just moved a Joomla 1.5 install from my iMac to a hosted site. The home page showed up fine, but subsequent pages were missing all styles. It turns out that I needed to change the variable $live_site in configuration.php from ” to = ‘http://www.example.com/mypath’. I’m not clear on why it worked on my MAMP install but not on the ISP, but apparently this is a common Joomla 1.5 install problem, as noted at this Joomla forum thread. (Scroll down to see Anthony Ferrara’s (aka ircmaxell) response on Feb 21, 2008 – ignore all the other bogus parts of the thread). Anthony is apparently a member of the core development team, on the bug squad. Thanks, Anthony!
