Hi there!
I have set up my own apache and sql server by using Xampp!
i have put file of smf forum on htdocs.
Everything is working fine in my pc. The problem is that other people from the Internet, cant see my theme...they just see white background...

I have the following port opened:
80
443
3306
8080
on both UDP and TCP.

Here is a pic of how does a friend of mine sees my forum

You configured SMF wrong for external access (probably).

In the install routine of SMF you might have been asked, on which server (or domain) the forum runs. You MUST NOT enter "localhost" here (and neither the local LAN IP like 192.168.1.1 or similar), but the external IP address of your PC (or Router) instead.

i found this post because i have exactly the same problem you sent.
I tried both opeining the ports and resetting the address of the forum but the problem still remains.
Can you tell me if you found the solution in any other way??
