That makes no sense 🤔 The search plugin has nothing to do with themes or skins. Do you have any errors in your logs after you disable the plugin and restart the forum? What about when you run ./nodebb build and restart is everything working after that?
Restart community after plugin install
I have installed one plugin and it asks to restart the community after install. I am afraid to restart as I doubt it might result into some code break or such issues. Is it safe to restart? I am new to community management, prompt response will be highly appreciated.
Yes it's normally safe to restart. After installing and activating a plugin, make sure you do a "rebuild and restart".
@PitaJ thanks. it helped.
