Thanks for your quick response and feedback!

Reviewing your feedback I think we're in agreement that there seemed to be some kind of "sourcing" or "pathing" issue. Which makes sense.

I pulled all the files from the Public folder and placed them within the XAMPP \htdocs (www) folder and was able to get much of the layout (including buttons) to appear but not everything; so, definitely a source file issue and on the right track.

I'm not familiar with "mod_rewrite" but after a quick web search, it seems this module attempts to source or "correct" source path issues (at least in part). Not sure why this was not working, however, feedback from you coupled with partial success of copying \public files to the web folder (xampp\htdocs) was enough to investigate a source path issue.

In short, I created a new \htdocs (www) folder (removing any prior xampp sample files & folders) and then copied all files from selfoss (zip) file into the new \htdocs folders, updated the config.ini and SUCCESS!

BTW, The second time, I did Not remove the "dot" in the .htaccess files and (so far) all seems to be working correctly so now I'll play with the app and db a bit more and post a new question if I need more help.

Thanks for your help. Much appreciated!
