activated a new theme, can't get to dashboard

www.emptynosesyndrome.org/vanilla

I can't get to the dashboard once I activated even though i'm still logged in. Anyone have any idea's of how I can get to the dashboard to change the theme? As is anything I click on brings me back to the same page.

Thanks
David

    Is there a way to change the theme via ftp or is there a dashboard url? There's no working dashboard link
    BTW, its the bootstrap theme if it makes any difference

    Thanks

    there should be a dropdown link to the right in the nav bar, it is in there.

    grep is your friend.

    Top right hand corner is my name with a tiny down arrow. highlighting it doesn't bring down a menu. clicking on it does nothing.
    Tried firefox,IE and chrome

    do this
    http://www.emptynosesyndrome.org/vanilla/?p=dashboard

    you haven't got rewrite urls on.

    Note that theme (which I haven't used) has specific instructions about updating jQuery. Not something I’d recommend generally certainly you want to save the previous version of jquery before doing this.

    Anyway if theme is working and you have the right permissions, the dropdown should work.

    Only turn rewites on if your sever rule are working (e.g .htaccess). you should be able to replace
    http://www.emptynosesyndrome.org/vanilla/?p=uri with http://www.emptynosesyndrome.org/vanilla/uri if so where uri is your location such as discussions

    You can set it in conf/config.php

    $Configuration['Garden']['RewriteUrls'] = TRUE;

    you can set a theme like so

    $Configuration['Garden']['Theme'] = default';

    grep is your friend.

    If the bootstrap theme isn't workign you should talk to @kasperisager

    New to this, how do I know if my server rule is working? I do know where to edit the .htaccess file and config.php

    Oh the joys of not reading the installation instructions! The Bootstrap menus won't work unless you carefully follow the README - Vanilla 2.0 ships with jQuery 1.something-that-isn't-7.2 and the menues therefore won't work unless you manually update the core jQuery library to 1.7.2, as specified in the installation instruction. I see that you changed the theme though - that's an acceptable workaround I guess :-)

    In any event, if you decide to take the Bootstrap theme for a spin feel to send me a PM or start a new discussion if you encounter any problems along your way!
