What to do when the Import page looks broken

Some of you may see a broken-looking import page. This happens because the Site URL and Home URL are not set up properly.

Let’s assume that the site URL that you are importing on is called http://local.wordpress.test

There are 3 steps to ensure that the Site URL and Home URL are correctly set up.

1. On your WordPress Dashboard, go to Settings > General and make sure that you put http://local.wordpress.test in the following fields.

2. Log in using FTP or cPanel and check to see if the lines below are presented in your wp-config.php file;
define(‘WP_HOME’, ‘http://local.wordpress.test‘);
define(‘WP_SITEURL’, ‘http://local.wordpress.test‘);

3. Access wp_options in your database making sure that siteurl and home are both set to your current site URL (http://local.wordpress.test).

Once the 3 steps above are taken, the Import page CSS should work properly.
