Forum OpenACS Development: Re: site template returns to default when creating new communities

Hi Luis,

I've tried to reproduce that behavior with no success. Which version of dotlrn are you using? and also, with which theme does it occur?

Hi Emmanuelle,

The code that is supposed to be wrong is in CVS since 3 months ago, so it's possible that you don't have latest version on your server. I've just installed all from CVS, using branch 5.2

I want to have Kelp theme. I can configure it with no problems, but when a new community is created, Sloan theme comes back. As said previously, I guess I know the exact code that produces the problem, but I do not want to change it due to I'm not sure about the purpose of this code.


I do have the last code from oacs-5-2 (we are working on releasing .LRN 2.2.1 alpha). Kelp theme is not supported for .LRN 2.2 but anyway I will have a look.

It does not matter. You should absolutely not rewrite the parameter for the site wide master just because a new community has been created. People have reasons to use a different site wide master.

This happend to one of our clients as well, we are just about to delete the code from the callback procs. This code has already been taken out for th 2.1 release when restarting the server was resetting the site-wide master template to the .LRN default template. Why got something like this back in ?
