Can't set up NodeBB from branch that's not master
@psychobunny, NodeBB installed and set lavender as the default - which was throwing a similar issue. I had hoped that swapping to vanilla would correct it, but no dice.
Just tried a theme swap again, with a restart - no avail.
Edit1: I should add that I tried to use a Vanilla theme after the fact to no avail as well.
git checkout 0.5.1 git pull cd node_modules sudo rm -rf nodebb-theme-vanilla git clone (vanilla theme) cd nodebb-theme-vanilla git checkout 0.5.1 git pull (should say already up to date) cd ../../ ./nodebb upgrade ./nodebb start
info: [meta/css] Minifying LESS/CSS
I don't see
winston.info('[meta/css] Done.');in your output log so clearly the css/less isn't being compiled correctly. Something must be erroring out in this function.
Having issues doing a git pull for the vanilla theme alone, its asking for a repo to be added to the command, and adding 0.5 1 does nothing.
git clone https://github.com/NodeBB/nodebb-theme-vanilla.git
@a_5mith, thanks for that.
I'm trying to SSH from my S4 on a single bar of service. Can't browse github effectively
@Ted Wish I could do anything with my S4, I've had it repaired once already, still doesn't work. They're dragging their feet on replacing it.
@a_5mith, sorry to hear that. Mine's been pretty well without issue. I have a regional carrier though, so a small public arguement in store would guarantee an immediate replacement under my insurance.

@a_5mith, looks like issue is still persisting. Even tried to redo setup, no avail. I did notice that Bootswatch themes seem to work with Mobile browsers when applied - sort of. The color is there at least.
Any other ideas?

Oh, the buster problem. Usually the issue I found was a misplaced
;that messed up the code to the point that the buster wouldn't bust. I say usually because it's been a few different problems for me that has caused the buster not to bust in the past, and I've been able to solve it a couple of different ways:
- check and see if there are any misplaced colons or semicolons, or any misplacements in the CSS at all
- revert to a previous version and make the changes you did after that
- wave your wand three times and say the magic words, then restart your NodeBB and check again
Let me know if any of these work, especially the third option because I think it's the best.
@Tanner, there's no custom CSS, so it seems to be something from 0.5.1 of NodeBB.
Also, I'm gonna try my hand at a plugin you requested. We'll see how it works out.
@Ted It could still be a mixup in the CSS either way, even if there's no custom work or not. Could be a plugin, could be the theme, but that's been the major cause of my problems to date.
@Tanner, tee total fresh install, with no plugins. Must be something with the theme then.
I'll scan through in a bit and see if I can spot the issue. Since you've sounded off here, I'm going to try to do the same for you.
@Ted I'll also see if I can reproduce the issue with a fresh install and let you know what I come up with in terms of a solution.
So I looked through the recent commits to the 0.5.1 lavender theme and couldn't find a wayward colon, semi or not.
Is anyone else having this issue? If not, I'll just try again from the snapshot before NodeBB.
Our local dev environments are fine (although I do switch back and forth between
0.5.1)... Let me start from scratch later today and see.
@julian, I think I fixed this issue. I rolled back to a snapshot before I installed NodeBB and re-cloned the 0.5.1 branch and it installed without an issue and I have sweet, glorious CSS!
