I am learning GeoServer by extracting OpenStreetMap shapefile from https://extract.bbbike.org/ and add to Stores n Layers within GeoServer following this tutorial http://docs.geoserver.org/latest/en/user/gettingstarted/shapefile-quickstart/index.html
I can view the Brisbane_Road layers however it has only lines without street names. Notice that the Tiger Road layers (sample came with the installation of GeoServer) is using a style called tiger_roads. I created a new style "Copy from existing style" and choose tiger_roads, and copy the content of Style Editor.
Apply that style to the Brisbane_Road layer and that layer no longer work. What am I doing wrong here, the style part ? Or the layer ? Or the Tiger New York layer was made from a source that support street name or such style?
