I upgraded my site to Geeklog 2.1.2 this morning, now everything is messed up. I can't select my theme any more. I lost my customizations. No matter what I try it keeps going back to the denim theme.

The forum isn't working - none of the tabs across the top work.

The dokuwiki plugin is telling me there are security updates that need to be added (this error has been there before the upgrade).

How do I get my theme back? Are there updates to the plugins that work with 2.1.2?

What version of Geeklog did you upgrade from?

There is a fix for the forum issue which you can download from here: https://github.com/Geeklog-Plugins/forum or wait a few days until the the forum version 2.9.2 is released.

Yes I notice that DokuWiki has a few hotfixes. THere is no timeline at the moment on when that will be fixed.

As far as I know the forum plugin is the only one that had an issue with Geeklog 2.1.2.

I upgraded from 2.1.1. I tried several things to get my theme working but nothing worked. I renamed the theme directory and then I could select it, but it was completely hosed. I can't find any documentation on what changed or what would need to be updated. I finally had my host restore everything after 2 days of downtime so I could get the site back up and running.

If you customized one of the original themes and still used the same directory then those changes would have been most likely copied over.

The best thing to do when customizing a theme:
- If it is just css use the custom.css file
- If you are also modifying a number of templates create a child theme on the theme you are modifying. This way you just include the template files that have changed. See the denim_curve theme for an example (it is a child theme of denim)

There was not many theme changes from Geeklog v2.1.1 to v2.1.2 so if your theme was untouched it should have still worked for the most part (except maybe the block editor). See the docs about half way down the page for the changes:
