Forum Theme Not Working...Completely

Hi everyone...Silverstripe newbie here working on building a site for an e-commerce class. My question has to do with the darkritual theme and it not being applied fully to the forum module. The default forum page (that shows the General Discussion forum) displays perfectly fine in the darkritual theme; however if I click on the General Discussion link, the forum opens in what looks like the default SilverStripe theme instead of continuing in the darkritual theme.

I have tried reuploading the darkritual_forum folder to my themes folder and doing the ?flush=1 numerous times and still no luck. I've also tried deleting the General Discussion forum and rebulding it and still get the same thing.

The page is available at I have also attached a screenshot of what's going on.

Thanks in advance for any help!

this is a known bug in the Forum Module. (Or we came across a similar one) make sure you are running the latest version or try the SVN version

The SVN version took care of it. Thank you very much!

Yes, this was caused by direct calls to CSS files in forum, and the project (mysite) instead of the themed ones!

I take it the version you tried was the one available on the download page?
