Remove core theme?
« on: August 20, 2019, 07:51:24 PM »
ok probably a silly question but just want to make sure
since I'm not using the core theme, it's safe to remove it, yes?
it's just an additional theme that happens to be named core, correct?
it's not really important?

thank you

Sure, if you're not using it, you can just delete it. Only the default theme needs to be kept.

It was named core, because it was a ported version of the 1.1.x theme of that name (which was the default theme for 1.1.x) :)
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

In theory, shouldn't you remove it in SMF admin > Theme settings before you actually delete it? Otherwise it'll still show in the list of themes in "Manage and Install".

Pretty sure that's what Gary means.

'delete' and 'remove' are used somewhat interchangeably in SMF.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

I read it as delete the files and be done with it. in that case it still needs to be removed from the admin panel.
