In fact, it *does* save them for custom themes as well, on 1.1.11 included. Though you're right, I'm not entirely certain they should on 1.1.x... Then again, nothing stops mod makers to make their mod install on any theme of their choice (and include those specific instructions into the mod's package - even though that mostly doesn't happen in practice ), so I guess it makes sense after all.

Phew.... Best feature ever!!

I guess my new forum doesn't like Aeva Media Gallery...  >:(

One question... Now that I have restored sanity to my forum, should I uninstall or delete the broken mod? I'm a bit worried about messing things up again (although at least I have the pre-install back up now - thanks SMF!). Or should I just leave it in place, showing as active?

It'll still be showing in your "installed.list" file, which is inside "Packages",

If you remove the line that show AEVA, it should vanish. Or, just replace it with the one in your backup.

When you say that's it's still active, what do you mean? The button's still showing?

When I go into Package Manager it still shows Aeva Media and I have the option to uninstall, list files, and delete. What I think I should do is run the uninstall (which fails the tests for a bunch of files) and then delete. Just wanted to double check before I mess things up again. I could just leave running as is, but would like to clean up my mess.

I had a look at that install.list file but it doesn't have much in there, just: 1326790205

if you are running 2.0.* use the attached script to mark the mod as uninstalled.

that file has nothing to do with the ad template so no idea why you would get that error. disable template eval and see what error you do get.

Admin -> Server Settings -> Disable evaluation of templates
Then post any new error messages without eval in them

then you should post about that in the ad mods support thread.

If that was my forum, I'd back everything up, cross my fingers, and do exactly that.

Good call, what I should have done in the first place. All good now... (except for my strange PM issue)

Thanks.

Nine times out of ten, you think "Fook it. I've backed up, so I'm gonna go for it" and it works.

When you do the same and don't backup, you can almost guarantee it'll fook everything up.

I believe it's known as "Finagle's law". ;)
