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

This is one thing that has me wondering about SMF.  It is apparently a known issue but in the latest version and new install nothing looked right because it was using http://127.0.0.1 to find everything!  How on earth would it ever do this or think it is normal?

Excerpt of crazy html code it produces that causes the issue:


    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://127.0.0.1/smf/Themes/default/css/index.css?fin20" />
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://127.0.0.1/smf/Themes/default/scripts/script.js?fin20"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://127.0.0.1/smf/Themes/default/scripts/theme.js?fin20"></script>

        <img id="upshrink" src="http://127.0.0.1/smf/Themes/default/images/upshrink.png" alt="*" title="Shrink or expand the header." style="display: none;" />
            <img id="smflogo" src="http://127.0.0.1/smf/Themes/default/images/smflogo.png" alt="Simple Machines Forum" title="Simple Machines Forum" />
        </div>



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.
