Installing the latest version 2.0 and added group of themes from the GitHub repository. Seems none of them show up after FTP'ing into theme folder?

Are all the theme now UNcompatible with 2.0?

As a test, added 2.0 in metadata.json in compatible area. No work.

This makes me sad:( But guess nice thing is version 2.0:)

We have to update the themes.

Which one do you want to use?

Thank you @Edi. Understand. Honestly was not sure which theme but if had to pick one, Foundation.

and

Thank you @diego.

Renamed the lang file to en.json and foundation theme appeared but not working. Looks like path issues, for example:

Code: Select all

Notice: Use of undefined constant PATH_THEME_PHP - assumed 'PATH_THEME_PHP' in /home/kidevents/public_html/bl-themes/foundation/index.php on line 5

the themes for Bludit v1.6 are not compatible for v2.0, but require minimal changes.
When I have some time I going to check that theme.

Ok Diego, thanks.

Was looking at docs to see what has changed but do not see. If you post what needs to be replaced people like myself just may be able to help0:)

Anyway, thanks. We were building a kids charity website but cannot use the few themes that work with 2.0. Will have to find another CMS for now.

Cheers!

Actually above my pay grade, I am just a worker bee:) Showed the themes to person funding the venture and she did not like them. Only one was clean blog but no sidebar to show categories and such.
