  • @lordcash it loads fine from my end

  • Yes, it looks fine. Maybe you have a different theme, maybe something is wrong while installing. Without details , details , details we cannot solve your problem.
    The person who gets the Bonk error should figure out how to see the details of that bonk error. Then search on the forums how to resolve those details.
    If a search hasn't found answer for that person, then post the details of that Bonk error (plus details in which case he gets that error, installing, admin page, special Url? you name it) and let's see who can help resolving the problem.

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    Having Similar Problem.

    I am using Bluehost, and used Simple Scripts to install Vanilla Forum 2.0.18.4

    Seems fine, but I cannot change the theme. Not even to the included Embed-Friendly or Mobile.

    I get this error:

    Smarty error: the $compile_dir '/home8/sevelem1/public_html/forum_vanilla/cache/Smarty/compile' does not exist, or is not a directory.

    `The error occurred on or near: /home8/sevelem1/public_html/forum_vanilla/library/vendors/Smarty-2.6.25/libs/Smarty.class.php

    Help? Thanks in advance!

  • whu606whu606 I'm not a SuperHero; I just like wearing tights... MVP

    '/home8/sevelem1/public_html/forum_vanilla/cache/Smarty/compile' does not exist,

    Is the clue!

    Manually create the folder and sub-folder, and make sure it is capital S for smarty, small c for compile.

  • Hah! That was it. Thank you very much, whu606!
