Hi.
Which file can I go into and change the site theme when the Configuration tab is not working.

Confused

Did you try changing the theme under "My Account"?

Yes, with no luck.
The problem is that I accidently changed the theme in the Configuration administration to a theme that does not support 1.5.0. I can’t get it back now.

Do you have a 1.5.0 compatible theme (e.g. Professional)? If so, what happens when you try changing it in "My Account"? You could also try disabling JavaScript before you go there.

Got this working now. I copied over a 1.5.0 supported theme over the theme folder that was not supported. Now I have access to all.

Thanks

Just out of curiosity, what theme were you using? Where did you get it from? If you downloaded it, what was the archive name?

That's simple: rename the incompatible theme to anything you like. Then rename a compatible theme to the name you configured, and the site will run fine on the compatible theme.

... unless this is a theme which uses a functions.php that contains custom theme_siteHeader() or theme_siteFooter() functions, of course.

No topics are shown. This is also why there is a message that stats No News to Display There are no news stories to display. There may be no news for this topic or your user preferences may be too restrictive Try adjusting one of the topics to allow anonymous traffic. I just tried to make a test post and it is either set for restrictive access or awaiting approval. Michael
