[Solved] No themes work but the Vanilla one...

edited June 2012 in Questions

When I try to enable any other theme than Vanilla I get the BONK page.

Anyone know anything about this?

Even the themes that come with it don't work.

Jack,

  • First of all you should switch on error reporting: http://vanillaforums.org/docs/errors

  • I already added that and did not work.

    Hosted?

    Did you upload vanilla yourself?

    so you put these two lines in config.php and didn't get debug output.

    $Configuration['Garden']['Debug'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Garden']['Errors']['MasterView'] = 'deverror.master.php';
    

    and you installed themes correctly.

    hard to believe you have no output if you did it correctly.

    Suggest you read all the docs a few times, especially the theme documentation. also read about bonk by searching for bonk. then go onto the wiki documentation, search for wiki.

  • Can you post a link to your forums just so we can get an idea of what could be going on?

    @422 that would explain some themes he pulled off the add-ons but it wouldn't explain why other themes that come with vanilla don't work, unless there is more confusion than meets the eye, which is highly possible since debug info didn't display.

    Yes, and Jack stated this "Even the themes that come with it don't work.".

    Whatever that means.

  • I could use some help with the Bonk issue when installing themes too. I have found the source error as Smarty->config folder missing. In my ftp, I have the folders but the config one is empty. I have deleted and added both the Smarty and config folders but with the same fatal error.

    I am new to this but attempt to follow directions closely.

    Question: is there some type of code or contents I'm supposed to know or have to put into the config folder so my themes will show and not throw out a Bonk error? Please let me know what I need to put into the empty config folder for this to work.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    • DUPLICATE messages are hard to follow go back to your original message above. you don't get twice as much help posting a duplicate - you just frustrate the people trying to help you.
