Upgrade to 2.1.1 broke themes ??

Post by TheLittleDuke » Sat Oct 28, 2017 9:49 pm

My site at https://blog.sppx.io is now themeless after upgraded to 2.1.1

And in admin if I click on themes I get this error:

The URL http://netmirror.org/mirror/serendipity ... mplate.xml (IP 176.9.206.60) could not be opened. Maybe the Serendipity or SourceForge.net Server is down - we are sorry, you need to try again later.
(The repository returned error code 404.)
Unable to retrieve data from SPARTACUS repository. Checking for repository availability on http://netmirror.org/mirror/serendipity/last.txt.

After patching up the system the theme is sort of back online but the right hand column is taking up too much screen real estate,

The admin link still reports a 404

Netmirror is probably still down, you'll want to switch your Spartacus plugin to use s9y.org or GitHub as the source for both themes and plugins. Make sure to check for plugin updates after switching.

Well, the /admin link does, but /serendipity_admin.php works. /admin is just a redirect to that, so it might be missing from your .htaccess or somewhere else. Not sure what “patching up the system” is supposed to mean, so it's kind of hard to diagnose.

Does your .htaccess file have a line with this?

Code: Select all

RewriteRule ^(admin|entries)(/.+)?$ index.php?url=admin/ [L,QSA]

Yeah, that's weird. On the one hand, you're using a very old theme (idea), on the other hand you have some very modern styles in your stylesheet using CSS flexbox. These flexbox styles don't seem to make much sense, and I'm not sure where they come from. Did you maybe add these yourself?
