    @cosmin It sounds like your NodeBB core is utilising themes that are out of date.

    Please run the following commands (and make sure they all complete successfully!):

    $ ./nodebb stop
    $ git fetch origin
    $ git checkout v0.4.x
    $ git merge origin/v0.4.x
    $ npm unlink nodebb-theme-vanilla nodebb-theme-lavender
    $ npm i    # this should re-install vanilla and lavender at the appropriate versioning
    $ ./nodebb start

    For reference, this is how you get the versions of lavender and vanilla (and their correct values for v0.4.3):

    julian@margaery:~/Projects/nodebb/forum$ npm ls nodebb-theme-vanilla nodebb-theme-lavender
    nodebb@0.4.3 /home/julian/Projects/nodebb/forum
    ├── nodebb-theme-lavender@0.0.25-16 
    └── nodebb-theme-vanilla@0.0.19-53 

  • @julian to late, i reinstalled it, so now i started all over 🙂 thanks for help.
