Easy Blogging not working

When I turn it on, I do not get the expected result. It's running on a MultiSites installation of the latest available WP version (3.0.2). You can see the screenshot at http://embctest.com/wpmu/easybloggingmessedup.jpg

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to mention that this one together with the Wizard was the main reason for subscribing.

Thanks!!

    Please try doing a CTRL-F5 when viewing that page. Probably some css conflicting or not loading fully.

    edit: That's a FAQ that you;re going to get from your users from time to time. If you have a FAQ or help site, you may want to include that.

    Well that error is a css file is missing. We went through this when they did the site redesign here at the premium site. (edit: I;m out of battery time or I'd link to some of the threads so you could see the screencaps. Look exactly the same.)

    Can you check to see if anything is showing up in your webserver's error logs please? It's probably a file missing.

    Last entry in /var/log/apache2/error.log is from yesterday, right after a scheduled reboot:

    [Sat Dec 04 00:29:57 2010] [notice] SIGHUP received. Attempting to restart
    [Sat Dec 04 00:30:09 2010] [notice] Apache/2.2.11 (Ubuntu) PHP/5.2.6-3ubuntu4.6 with Suhosin-Patch mod_ssl/2.2.11 OpenSSL/0.9.8g configured -- resuming normal operations

    Everything in /var/log/apache2/access.log looks normal

    As @drmike said the issue is caused by missing css file. You probably want to have look at access.log for your virtual host. Look for 404 errors to css files.

    An easier approach would be to grab Firebug and enable the Net tab -> CSS tab, then reload the page. Look for any 404 errors relating to easy.admin.both.css. Also whether the content returned is css.

    Nothing like that, there seems to be no file missing.

    This is the result of activating Easy Admin and deactivating it:

    All of them are properly HTTP 200 responses.

    Any other idea where to look at?

    I am having the same problem. The paths that the instructions give and the path to the css don't match.

    The instructions say to install it here: /wp-content/plugins/mu-plugins/easybloggingfiles

    While the path for the css is looking here: /wp-content/plugins/easyblogging/easybloggingfiles/css/easy.admin.both.css

    I have tried moving the instsall to the path that the css link is pointing to but that errors out the whole site.

    I am running WordPress Multi-Site 3.0.2 and Easy Blog 1.1.2

    I found the error. In the easy_blogging.php file on line 82, I removed /easyblogging from the path in the block of code

    } else { //We are in the WPMU Plugin Directory
    $this->thispluginpath = WP_PLUGIN_DIR . '/easyblogging/easybloggingfiles/';
    $this->thispluginurl = WP_PLUGIN_URL . '/easyblogging/easybloggingfiles/';
    }

    Like this:

    } else { //We are in the WPMU Plugin Directory
    $this->thispluginpath = WP_PLUGIN_DIR . '/easybloggingfiles/';
    $this->thispluginurl = WP_PLUGIN_URL . '/easybloggingfiles/';
    }

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
