Randomly my CSS just broke



  • Hi, i love nodebb. It clearly is the best forum engine out there... I do have one problem though and it happened randomly (from what i know). The CSS on my forum is broken. https://forum.shinobi.video/ I am not sure what to do to fix it. I have restarted the engine and contemplated recreating a new one a few times but i want to be sure of the direction i am going to go to minimize time spent on this on issue (me and everyone who helps).

    Thanks in advance!

    This is because of the skin you have selected. You can either update to v1.7.5 or change the skin to the default one to fix this issue.



  • @PitaJ thanks for responding, i have upgraded it and restarted it many times but the problem persists 😞 i even click the blue circle icon in the skins page and still broken

    ive also run

    ./nodebb reset -p
    ./nodebb reset -s
    ./nodebb reset -t
    

    none do anything to fix the issue either 😞

    I've also tried copy and pasting the CSS found on this site into my Custom CSS field but still broken 😞



  • is anyone facing the same issue? i have been stuck on this for months with no accpetable solution in sight 😞 i don't know how to migrate to another install of nodebb

    does anyone have a suggestion on what i can do?

    Have you tried upgrading NodeBB? What version are you on now?



  • yes i upgraded it was still broken.

    I just fixed it though and the solution was to do the following steps

    Exit the nodebb directory

    cd ..
    

    redownload nodebb into another folder. I called it nodebb2.

    git clone https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB.git nodebb2
    

    then i copied over my config file

    cp nodebb/config.json nodebb2/config.json
    

    then ran your setup thinger

    ./nodebb setup
    

    then start and voila!

    ./nodebb start
    

    Now running the best forum engine on the web once again!

    Thank you @PitaJ !
