I seem to be having a problem previewing a layer group in geoserver. I have 3 shapefiles that i converted from a dxf and i can preview each successfully however when i try to preview the layer group nothing appears apart from the open layers border and nav controls. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Generate Bounds button (assuming all your data is in the same projection and area of interest.)

This is what I was going to suggest. Make sure the 3 shape files are in the same projection if once you're bounds are calculated you still have the same problem. – OptimizePrime Apr 13 '11 at 16:09
Also be sure to keep the raster or the basemap is on top in your group layer as shown in the above image – Sam007 May 14 '12 at 17:08
