    it looks like your css templates are missing. Somehow your default style is not installed correctly or it is not fetching the css file. Download a fresh copy of vbulletin from members area and reupload all the files, And run upgrade script, And it should work properly.

      You don't have mod_rewrite availab,e or enabled, or you didn't upload the htaccess.

        all files are there css and htaccess

        how can I have mod_rewite availabl?

          Contact your webhost, that's something they need to do for you.

            the rewrite function is available on my webhost servers.
            they said to me

            and I reinstall it but still have the same problem

              1) Make sure you uploaded the .htaccess file (assuming your on Apache or a server that uses .htaccess)

              2) If your forum is installed in a sub-folder ( for example) add the code RewriteBase /vb/ direcrly below the RewriteEngine On line in .htaccess (Change /vb/ to whatever subfolder it is installed in)

              3) Double check the Base URL set in the /config.php file does not end in a slash (/)

              4) Double check the Core URL in Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details is correct (ends in /core) and does NOT end in a slash (/) either.

                    RewriteBase /forum/

                    (But, I just went to your site and it looks just fine.)
