SMF Forums / Simple Machines Forums Not Displaying Images Theme or Styles Properly using 127.0.0.1

To repair it you need to get a tool from the SMF site: https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Repair_settings.php#Download_the_Repair_Settings_Tool

Get the tool run it and you'll see some output like this:

Almost always aside from MySQL DB you should change 127.0.0.1 to the domain name of your server.
