WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am using the roots theme. Inside scripts.php, the stylesheets are loaded using the wp_enqueue_style-function.

  wp_enqueue_style('roots_bootstrap', get_template_directory_uri() . '/assets/css/bootstrap.css', false, null);
  wp_enqueue_style('roots_bootstrap_responsive', get_template_directory_uri() . '/assets/css/bootstrap-responsive.css', array('roots_bootstrap'), null);
  wp_enqueue_style('roots_app', get_template_directory_uri() . '/assets/css/app.css', false, null);

I tried to add my own stylesheet (style.css, it can be found directly inside the template folder) the same way:

  wp_enqueue_style('fsc', get_stylesheet_uri(), false, null);

This is the output:

<link href="/wordpress/style.css" rel="stylesheet">

Of course this doesnt work. Same for get_template part or blog_info('stylesheet_url') What's interesting is, that the other paths are wrong, too:

<link href="/wordpress/assets/css/app.css" rel="stylesheet">

But the bootstrap stylesheets are loaded however. How is that possible?

This is the htaccess:

            # BEGIN HTML5 Boilerplate

            ###
            ### This contains the HTML5 Boilerplate .htaccess that can be found at:
            ### https://github.com/h5bp/server-configs/blob/master/apache/.htaccess
            ###
            ### Added:
            ###   Block access to WordPress files that reveal version information.
            ###
            ### Removed:

            ### Anytime you update this file the .htaccess file in the root of your
            ### WordPress install is automatically updated with the changes whenever
            ### the permalinks are flushed or set (see lib/htaccess.php)

What is in your .htaccess file? Also, try switching themes and see if those functions work. –  s_ha_dum Mar 24 '13 at 14:15
    
The theme has a file called h5bp-htaccess. Is that relevant? Or just the htaccess under wordpress/ or both? –  Lord_Mord Mar 24 '13 at 14:27
    
Start with the normal .htaccess under /wordpress/ –  s_ha_dum Mar 24 '13 at 14:32
    
And theres a htaccess.php, which contains something with homepath and rewrite rules, I dont understand. I will post it above. –  Lord_Mord Mar 24 '13 at 14:32
    
This post is starting to get too long, if neccessary, I will provide h5bp-htaccess. –  Lord_Mord Mar 24 '13 at 14:39

I don't think you want get_stylesheet_uri, which will return the complete stylesheet URL including style.css. You want get_stylesheet_directory_uri, which will give you the path up to the child/parent theme stylesheet directory but not the trailing style.css, and which is the function used by the Roots theme per the code you posted.

wp_enqueue_style('fsc', get_stylesheet_directory_uri().'/abcdefg.css', false, null);

I also notice that you didn't provide the actual stylesheet name so I tacked on /abcdefg.css.

It is interesting that the URLs are not absolute URLs. That could be a plugin, a theme, or some server module like Google's PageSpeed, which will strip the domain like that.

The work-around !

Per a chat with Lord_Mort, we worked out that the Roots theme appears to be rewriting requests to either /themes/ or /wp-content/themes/ which makes it difficult to add stylesheets normally. Lord_Mort discovered that a path like wp-content/beans/fsc/style.css is not rewritten, so the workaround we came to is to is to use the same trick that Roots uses and add stylesheets to a non-standard location that will not be rewritten. Lord_Mort's decision was to use the same one Roots uses.

wp_enqueue_style('fsc', get_stylesheet_directory_uri().'/assets/css/style.css', false, null);

Without installing that theme I don't think I can debug and solve the issue more elegantly.

The stylesheets name is style.css. get_stylesheet_directory_uri() doesnt work either. It returns the same path. –  Lord_Mord Mar 24 '13 at 14:05
    
If it is a plugin or theme, shouldnt it work for my url, too? –  Lord_Mord Mar 24 '13 at 14:11
    
Sounds like a broken install, or your theme or a plugin is causing trouble. No, doesn't necessarily mean that what works for the Roots stylesheets will work for yours. It looks a bit like Roots has relativized the path to its directory, somehow. What should the full URL be? –  s_ha_dum Mar 24 '13 at 14:13
    
wordpress/wp-content/themes/fsc/style.css –  Lord_Mord Mar 24 '13 at 14:14
