How do I include a css file while creating a wordpress theme?

Tags: php,css,wordpress,header,stylesheet

Problem :

I'm trying to create a wordpress theme. After following some tutorials I've written this in my header.php

<link href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url');  ?> " rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" />

I have one CSS file, styles.css, in the same folder as the index.php. What I have id weirdly calling CSS from somewhere, but not from the style.css file. How do I make it call all its styles from the styles.css file?? Thanks : )

Solution :

Might be a good idea to check the output of the bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); function (say, by echoing it out somewhere) and see wether it actually points to your stylesheet. You can always use bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); and add a filename to link to another file in the same dir.
