I have changed my permalink structure to /%category%/%postname%/.The links are working, but the problem is that my style.css is not working in some of the posts which are inside the category.

  • Can you link me to the problem?

  • what's the code you're using for the stylesheet url? <?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?> or something else? Commented Jan 11, 2011 at 17:14

At a guess I'd say you're linking to your stylesheet with a relative url like so:

<link href="wp-content/themes/my-theme/style.css" rel="stylesheet" />

so when you end up anywhere other than the home page it's looking at the full URL plus the path indicated to your stylesheet.

Make sure your stylesheet URL begins with a slash if you're putting it in as static HTML eg:

<link href="/wp-content/themes/my-theme/style.css" rel="stylesheet" />

Even better though is to use the built-in wordpress function for getting the stylesheet URL as Eileen has indicated in the comments. Use this syntax:

<link href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>" rel="stylesheet" />

In order to include other CSS files look into the wp_enqueue_style() function in the codex - http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_enqueue_style
