    The common causes for a session mismatch error are usually one of the following:

    1. Mis-configured URL parameter in your config.json file

    If you have a misconfigured url value in your config.json file, the cookie may be saved incorrectly (or not at all), causing a session mismatch error. Please ensure that the link you are accessing your site with and the url defined match.

    2. Improper/malformed cookieDomain set in ACP

    Sometimes admins set this value without realising that they probably don't need to set it at all. The default is perfectly fine. This is what the config looks like:

    Cookie Domain setting

    If this is set, you'll want to revert the setting by editing your database directly:

    Redis: hdel config cookieDomain
    MongoDB: db.objects.update({ _key: "config" }, { $set: "cookieDomain": "" });

    3. Missing X-Forwarded-Proto header from nginx/apache

    If you are using a reverse proxy, you will need to have nginx pass a header through to NodeBB so it correctly determines the correct cookie secure property.

    In nginx, you will need to add the directive like so:

    location / { ... proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme; ... }

    some of my users are complaining that theme is not very user friendly.

    And they recommended that as a better alternative? That black on blue combination is something else.

    My recommendation would be to role with Lavender, then adjust the theme to match the dark theme you're going for. I had a lightbulb in my header that switched between dark and light on my old theme. Will do it for persona at some point. But I'm in no rush.

    I think lavender theme does not support custom skins like persona.

    Not as well, but the bootstrap custom skins are a bit flaky anyway. IMO obviously. If you want a theme you're happy with. You'll have to roll your own or get the nodebb guys to quote you for the work. There isn't a one size fits all theme unfortunately unless you know how to write CSS.
