I have a site hosted from my Raspberry Pi, and recently I've ran into this problem:

When I view the site on the local network, the site looks great. Everything loads, all the CSS etcetera.

However, whenever I view it outside the local network, the index page loads, but none of the other pages load and the site is all plain text.

What could the problem be? According to Chrome there is no error message and it just says "failed".

The site is running WordPress.

Site URL: http://northantrim.redirectme.net (only until I get this issue solved)

How the site should look: http://i.imgur.com/4UJNW.png

Current permissions (set to 777 in hope of resolving):

check folder permissions, if you are fine with it include the urls to your website –  Shakehar Jan 7 '13 at 20:20
I've checked all permissions again, and even changed them to 777 for the time being to see if that would help. Added URL to post. –  Nysepho Jan 7 '13 at 20:26
your link to about me is raspberrypi/?page_id=13 shouldn't it be something like raspberrypi.org/?page_id=13 –  Shakehar Jan 7 '13 at 20:37
Strange, that's the hostname, which is what I used to set everything up. I'll try setting it up from the domain instead. –  Nysepho Jan 7 '13 at 20:38
It's all working now. I'll write an answer. –  Nysepho Jan 7 '13 at 20:59

I'd set up WordPress from my desktop PC using the Raspberry Pi's hostname as the URL. This meant that every URL was http://rapberrypi/<file> instead of the proper URL.

congrats, but your current question and the answer is too localized, on SU we try to keep questions that will cater to an issue that many people might face. I would suggest you to explain in detail what the issue was and how to rectify it, or it might be voted to be closed –  Shakehar Jan 7 '13 at 21:07
