This question already has an answer here:

Fixed: I did alot of troubleshooting and testing diffrent solutions(see rest of the post and comments).

I got it working after doing the following steps:

  • I ran "ipconfig /renew" in commandline.
  • Deactivated and reactivated my network connection/network card.
  • Hard-refreshed(ctrl+r) again.

I try to get into StackOverflow.com, but all I get is text and links. Nothing is styled/formatted, and the text has no structure.

meta.stackoverflow.com works like normal. All other webpages works normal.

Here's an example of StackOverflow.com: enter image description here

Edits

Tried:

  • Firefox, Chrome and Opera. Same results in all browsers.
  • Hard-refresh: Ctrl-F5 and ctrl+shift+r
  • Clearing my cache

Still nothing. Seems like a CDN problem.

Other information:

  • Windows 8
  • Chrome
  • 50mb bandwidth

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Does seem like a CDN problem. But the solutions/troubleshooting posted in that post are too complicated for me. I don't understand them. – Einar Dec 16 '13 at 7:48
  • Try loading cdn.sstatic.net/stackoverflow/all.css?v=dafcffdb6e85 directly, see what you get. – Shog9 Dec 16 '13 at 7:50
  • It tries loading cdn.sstatic.net/stackoverflow/all.css?v=dafcffdb6e85, but returns "This webpage is not available". – Einar Dec 16 '13 at 7:53
  • Are you behind a filtering proxy? Do you have any domain-filtering software? Anything like that? – Marc Gravell Dec 16 '13 at 8:17
  • Also: what happens if you tracert cdn.sstatic.net ? or if you ping cdn.sstatic.net ? – Marc Gravell Dec 16 '13 at 8:17
  • No filtering proxy that I know of. Is there any way of checking? I haven't installed any network-related software. – Einar Dec 16 '13 at 8:19
  • Where do I run tracert cdn.sstatic.net? In commandline? – Einar Dec 16 '13 at 8:20
  • @Einar yes, it is a command-line tool; it will usually take about 30 seconds and about 5-15 "hops" to get there – Marc Gravell Dec 16 '13 at 8:21
  • Hmmm... looks like most likely a CDN/DNS/routing problem - it probably is unrelated to your machine: i.stack.imgur.com/KDnlT.png – Marc Gravell Dec 16 '13 at 8:26
  • Tracert took about 6 mins, 30 hops, most got request timed out. See edits in main post for full picture. – Einar Dec 16 '13 at 8:30
  • Ohh, okay. So if it's a CDN/DNS/routing problem, is there anything I can do to fix it? – Einar Dec 16 '13 at 8:35
  • This looks like an issue with your ISP. Nothing you can do except yell at them and hope the technical support person you are yelling at has a clue. – Michael Hampton Dec 16 '13 at 8:46

The stack overflow style sheet isn't downloading/loading. That is why you still see all the basic stuff like text.

Sometimes this can be solved by pressing ctrl+F5.

It is normally caused by a slow internet connection

  • I've tried ctrl-F5/hard-refresh, still nothing. Also tried to clear my cache. – Einar Dec 16 '13 at 7:50
  • Clearing cache did not resolve this, @Einar? – Tim Post Dec 16 '13 at 8:23
  • @TinyTim No, unfortunatly not. – Einar Dec 16 '13 at 8:37
  • How fast is your internet connection? It can sometimes time out and leave the style sheet. Are the style sheets loading fine on other websites? – Mat Whiteside Dec 16 '13 at 17:08
