Cannot access site index
« on: March 13, 2018, 05:57:10 PM »
A few minutes ago, I installed my St. Patricks Day theme and apparently it does not work with this version of the software.  I have used this theme for the last 9 years without problems.  Now, I cannot get into my forum.  The login page looks normal but once you enter the site, all I can see are the ST.Pats graphics and nothing else.

How can I fix this?  My site is at http://pirc-forum.com  but as I said, one must log in to see the problem.  All l can see is the St. Pat background and my banner.  If nothing else, how can I get back to my regular theme?

Please don't make it too technical because I won't understand.

You can change the default theme from your Admin Panel -> Themes and Layout Settings.
It's fast, it's furious, it's generalcartalk.com

That's how I got into this mess.  I changed my default theme to one for St. Patricks Day, which is what I do every year, but this year, I only get the theme graphics - nothing else at all.

If you have only changed from one installed theme to the other, you may be able to use http://pirc-forum.com/index.php?theme=1 (or a number for your other theme, replacing "1"), after logged in.
