Theme is damaged after upgrade from to 2.1


Can anyone help me to get rid of this issue. After adding $Configuration['Debug'] = TRUE; in conf I get :

Info Need to re-index theme cache
Info Need to re-index plugin cache
Warning Master views differ. Controller: {PATH}/vanill7/applications/dashboard/views/default.master.php, ViewLocation(): {PATH}/vanill7/applications/dashboard/views/default.master.tpl

My default theme is completely damaged.

How can I resolve this ?

    Your theme is not damaged you simply need to re style it and add the missing css rules and a few details . Give me a link and I will check it out.

  • I getting this issue on windows installation. I noticed that If I remove \applications\dashboard\views\default.master.php then it works fine.

    But not sure whether It is safe. How can I re style and add missing css ?
    Can I do this from dashboard ? Or manual coding ?

    The reason is because you probably were using the php version of the master and selected in the dashboard.

    The new Master is a tpl :)

    You should create a custom theme.

    Those warnings are benign and not indicative of an actual problem you need to address.

    As you said that Vanilla has now shifted to tpl from php so do I need to delete the following file :

    It is not present in the new 2.1 package I downloaded. But as mentioned in the upgrade guide I unzipped the new package over my existing install so the file still exists.

    Is it safe to delete the file :

    @jameswill Excellent catch! Yes! Delete applications\dashboard\views\default.master.php during the upgrade. Editing the instructions now.
