Why is custom mobile theme not showing on dashboard.

Just upgraded to vanilla version 2.2 and custom mobile theme is showing on mobile device.
However, custom mobile theme does not show on dashboard - Appearance - Mobile Themes.

    'AuthorUrl' => 'http://www.my-site.com'

    should be

    'AuthorUrl' => 'http://www.my-site.com',

    every field in the array needs a comma after it, except the last one

    if you omit a comma it stops reading the rest of the info.

    ,

    make sure your theme is in the prospermobile folder as well

    themes/prospermobile

    $ThemeInfo['prospermobile'] = array(
    'Name' => 'Prosper Mobile',
    'Description' => "A refined design for mobile browsers",
    'Version' => '1.0.0',
    'Author' => "Prosper",
    'AuthorEmail' => '[email protected]',
    'AuthorUrl' => 'http://www.my-site.com',
    'IsMobile' => true
    );

    You need to add the IsMobile flag to your theme's info array in about.php file to show up in the dashboard.

    'IsMobile' => true

    @prosper said: How can I make the custom mobile theme show on dashboard - Appearance - Mobile Themes?

    edit the about.php of your custom mobile theme.

    look in the $ThemeInfo array

    add

       'IsMobile' => true
    

    e.g.

    $ThemeInfo['prospermobile'] = array(
       'Name' => 'Prosper Mobile',
       'Description' => "Proper's mobile theme,
       'Version' => '1.0',
       'Author' => "Prosper",
       'IsMobile' => true
    );

    @hgtonight and @peregrine
    I have added 'IsMobile' => true but custom theme did not show up on dashboard.
    Is there any other modification I need to make. The custom theme was cloned from default mobile theme on later vanilla version.

    refresh your browser and it should work

    otherwise. post your about.php

    you know how informative that is

  • I have refresh browser and even used a different browser but custom theme did not show on dashboard.
    By later vanilla version I mean maybe version older than version 2.1.11. but not too old. I am not sure the particular version.
    But About.php says

    well you posted everything but the themeinfo array, which is what I want to see.

    all you posted was a comment!

  • Thank you @peregrine. It worked now. The problem was the comma.
