Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.
Please upgrade here. These earlier versions are no longer being updated and have security issues.


So I am testing on my mobile and using the auro2 theme. I have made the required css changes that I wanted to to adjust for the color scheme that fits my needs. However, upon testing with mobile, i noticed that the theme color was still using the same one when I originally started tinkering with VanillaForums and that the head section is pointing to /applications/dashboard/scss/legacy folder where the css is found.

I am new at this forum stuff and am trying to read up on documentation, searching the forums etc. but am a bit confused about how the mobile theme works.

In the back end, you have a section for mobile which contains 1 theme. In reading the forums answers to others questions, I attempted to add the following line to my /conf/config.php file

<<< $Configuration['Garden']['MobileTheme'] = 'Bootstrap'; >>> I tried Gopi, I tried a few others with same resulting mobile page look and feel.

I simply wish to utilize the same theme for mobile as desktop versions.

Requesting some guidance to either documentation or discussion I may have missed, or some help from more experienced folks here.

Thank you in advance,


  • ok, i got the mobile to move by creating my own mobile template as suggested in another discussion.

    Now I am able to see color update and also noticed that there are some links/options at the bottom of my mobile screen.

    When logged in, I see "Full Site" "Dashboard" "Sign Out"
    and when
    Not Logged in, I see near the copyright in footer "Back to Mobile Site"

    The site as loading this way is showing exactly the color scheme and how i want it to display all the time, without user intervention.

    When I do click on "Full Site" from the mobile theme I want, the link shows it points to /profile/nomobile.
    Can anyone please guide on how i can keep this link for mobiles all the time without options to switch back and forth by user?

    If you wish to test, the url is

    Best regards,

    Simply remove the link to the non mobile site from the template.
