Dreaded Bonk Error - which is really an error with Smarty.trigger_error();

edited May 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I've got a basic install of Vanilla which throws up the Smarty.trigger_error when I try to sign up using twitter, or when I try to use specific themes.

I gather it's a write permissions issue - but since this is a vanilla install, I don't know which directories I should be giving write access to.

Variables in local scope:
[error_msg] 'the $compile_dir \'/-/-/-/forum/cache/Smarty/compile\' does not exist, or is not a directory.'
[error_type] 256

Is there anyone out there who could nudge me in the right direction?

    the directories /Smarty and /Smarty/compile need to exist in cache

    grep is your friend.
