basically was using an install of drupal at http://x.x.x.x/~user until the domain proprigated. now its done the content and things are not being displayed properly any ideas? its displaying fine on .x.x.x.x/~user but not the domain.
been to site maintenance and its shoing domain.com which is should do.
it shows up but for some reason the style sheets are being applied properly as it just looks totally different and banner is missing.
LOL, if you remove your page.tpl.php file, you basically destroying part of your template. Drupal will fall back to more general template files when you remove that one, but it would be best to dive into settings.php and set the proper URL for your website. Also check if you have a base href in your page.tpl.php and remove that, not the entire file!
