Copying Themes

Hi!

As of today, I've been trying to copy a custom theme by choosing the 'Copy a template from the theme this is based on.' option within theme settings. Every time I attempt this(even with core), I receive the error message of: "Your session timed out while posting. Please go back and try again."

Any clue as to why? I have tried the 2.0.14 login fix if that helps at all.

Update your smf Version to 2.0.15 and clear all hystory and cache broswer

My version is 2.0.15 and I have already attempted clearing my browser, along with trying others.

Did you install the fix on all themes? If not, uninstall it and run it again, see if all tests pass and if they do, apply it on your custom theme as well ;).

The Login Fix mod doesn't edit any theme code, it doesn't have to.

Hmmm... never installed it, so I wouldn't know, I manually edited my theme... I presumed the mod edited theme files too.

Just out of curiosity, how does it work without editing theme files if the login goes through the theme?

Take a look at the code. It's basically black magic.

Patched SSI... do it in the backbone. Clever ;).

Just double checked and redid it for safe measure! ( aka literally changing nothing, pasting the code in again with the correct white space, and pressing save like five times lol... it 'works faster' that way ;) ).

Any other possibilities I should check? Truly, this isn't a necessary fix that I need immediately because I have the theme saved to my computer / server, but it'd be a pleasure to do it on site and allow my fellow admins to do it also.
