Haha, thanks for the kind words @theepiphany! We really appreciate it.
You'll notice several Canadian-isms in NodeBB still. (e.g. the "favourite" button)
Let us know where your forum is, we'd love to add it to our unofficial directory!
Following the instructions, I did:
git fetch # Grab the latest code from your current branch git checkout v0.4.3
I was previously using 0.4.2. But when I try to
git pull I get:
git pull You are not currently on a branch, so I cannot use any 'branch.<branchname>.merge' in your configuration file. Please specify which remote branch you want to use on the command line and try again (e.g. 'git pull <repository> <refspec>'). See git-pull(1) for details.
I'm not familiar with git and am unsure what to do. Thanks in advance!
OK I found the v0.4.x branch and did a
pull on that instead:
git pull Already up-to-date.
The forum says 0.4.3 now in the Admin panel but I'm still getting the weird theme issue here.
git checkout v0.4.3
Actually, you should check out the "x" branch, so
git checkout v0.4.x :), though it seems like you figured that out!
Have you also run
@a_5mith Yes, I did. Which I think I shouldn't have, because it's not a major version change?
@Guiri Yeah, you need to run upgrade after every pull request. Which you've done, which is good.
So is it just the theme you're having issues with now?
Thank you again.

Aborting
I think the problem is that somehow I'm still on master. Maybe I should just download 0.4.3 from the zip and move over the
/public folder? I think that's Guiri-proof, right?
@Guiri NodeBB shouldn't be run from anywhere publicly accessible.
Your error there would suggest a file exists remotely, but not locally. git will not allow you to overwrite a local untracked file.
You may want to wait for either Julian or someone else with more git version knowledge, but I'm pretty sure that running
git checkout -f master or
git checkout -f v0.4.x would work, as it will force the files to be overwritten. But I've not used it, so I'd check with HQ.
Ah interesting. I put it in /var/www/ like my other web apps. Oops
Everything worked well using
git checkout -f v0.4.x, including the
git merge origin/v0.4.x. Trying to do the last step in the instructions:
git pull You asked me to pull without telling me which branch you want to merge with, and 'branch.v0.4.x.merge' in your configuration file does not tell me, either. Please specify which branch you want to use on the command line and try again (e.g. 'git pull <repository> <refspec>'). See git-pull(1) for details. If you often merge with the same branch, you may want to use something like the following in your configuration file: [branch "v0.4.x"] remote = <nickname> merge = <remote-ref> [remote "<nickname>"] url = <url> fetch = <refspec> See git-config(1) for details.
EDIT: I solved this by associating it with v0.4.x
git branch --set-upstream v0.4.x origin/v0.4.x and was able to 'git pull`!
Now I'm having an upgrade error:

If I attempt to start nodebb after the failed upgrade, it leads to the theme problem which lead to my other post (at least I recreated the problem...).
I'm running into the exact same issue as yourself, is there an update on how this can be fixed?
