Maintenance mode turned pages white
« on: November 11, 2018, 07:02:04 AM »
Hi, I shut down my forum for one hour today and after clicking save the forum pages went white instead of the blue for the theme. I am using the Dilber MC theme.
Anyone any ideas how to get back the blue pages? Thanks

White, as in it's fully white with two lines of black text? Or white as in using the White variant of the Dilber MC theme?

If the former, maintenance mode would be set to 2 which locks everyone out, even admins. Edit Settings.php to reset it back to 0, or 1 for standard maintenance mode.

If the latter, then simply reset the variant used. Though theme issues should be handled in their appropriate support topic.

Thanks for quick response but neither option worked. I had already tried using a different theme colour. site is www.arboleas.co.uk/forum/

I have also reverted to the SMF default theme Babylon and too only displays white pages. Weird eh?

Looks to be a CSS issue where they're not loading. Try checking to make sure that the paths are correct.

Saying that though, you're better upgrading to SMF 2.0 as soon as you can. 1.1 is declared end of life.

Yeah, I have been wanting to do that for some time but the forum is fairly big with over 7000 members. How easy it to upgrade?
