I recently deployed Orchard to a shared hosting environment. It deploys okay only it displays as raw html markup.
The startup page doesn't have any style applied, the main site (after initial config) is the same as is the admin section.
On first investigation it seemed that it couldn't reach the themed resources. I thought it might be a security on the themes folder as I had to allow write access to the App_Data folder to even get that far. However this didn't fix anything.
I then installed a new theme for the gallery and set this as default and hey presto I had a theme applied. Everything looked groovy. Only the dashboard still had no style applied. So it seemed that the right access permissions existed on the Themes folder
at least (and subsequent subfolders).
The next thing I tried was to set the original Theme Machine back as default. And this resulted in no styling yet again. Weird!
Is there rewrite rules at play here that are screwing things up? Although I can live with using another Theme than the Theme Machine I can't live without a style in the admin section.
All ideas welcome.
