Hi Folk I'm trying to learn the basics of EE2 and have setup a test rig using MAMP PRO I got everything working. I'm basically converting one of my basic static websites into a EE2 driven site. However when I tried to login to the admin area yesterday I've seem to be missing most of the formatting i.e I can still login however the back-end interface is mostly missing. the front end is still working okay. What do you think has happened and how do I get the back-end fully back with out doing a full install again?

If you mean that the control panel pages appear without style and formatting this sounds like a path issue.

In the control panel, go to Admin > General Configuration and check the URL to your "themes" folder and Theme Folder Path are both correct.

If that's not it, then I'd double check the permissions on the themes folder.

You can also use your web inspector console to check for errors.
