Re-installing askbot - skin css

I updated askbot-devel for the new skin - using,

and then run python2.6 install in my production in webfaction (and changed required stuffs in of forum).

Now, the question page's css is broken (the right side bar items move at bottom) - anyway, this doesn't break locally.

I supposed I need to clean the installation (in site-package) - that's what made the css messy - I run python2.6 clean - but no luck.

Any suggestions much appreciated

running 'python2.6 clean --all' and then installing again seems to have solved the problem. Is there any better approach to do, before re-installing askbot?

Can you upload a screenshot? there are some things you can check

  • If you have custom css in your forum, you can see this on the settings page.
  • Clear browser cache.
  • reinstall from pypi.

You can try to reinstall the software, in your server just do:

pip install askbot

this will install the latest version from pypi that already includes the new skins,
