Hi all, its me again...

I tried to change the theme from blackcandy to plain, and i keep having an error message come up saying that "
Fatal error: Class 'Director' not found in /home/.leif/acronum/youths-empowered.com/mysite/_config.php on line 19"

This is once i activate the link" http://www.youths-empowered.com/mysite/_config.php "

I really want to get this working, but i can't seem to overcome this error message...

Any help would be great

Many thanks,

To change a theme all you need to do is open the _config.php file in the mysite directory in notepad and edit the line which goes SSViewer::set_theme() to the name of your theme

thanks already have. did that yesterday with my mate.

<?php

global $project;
$project = 'mysite';

global $databaseConfig;
$databaseConfig = array(
   "type" => "MySQLDatabase",
   "server" => "",
   "username" => "",
   "password" => "",
   "database" => "",
);

// Sites running on the following servers will be
// run in development mode. See
// http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=devmode
// for a description of what dev mode does.
Director::set_dev_servers(array(
   'wwww.youths-empowered.com',
   '205.196.216.190',
));

// This line set's the current theme. More themes can be
// downloaded from http://www.silverstripe.com/cms-themes-and-skin
SSViewer::set_theme('plain2');

?>

Plain2 is the folder which the plain theme is located in. once i run mysite/_config; i get the error message above.

Thanks

you dont need to 'run' mysite/config or anything all you need to do is edit that file and refresh the system by going http://www.yoursite.com?flush=1

Hi,
Check that you still have a valid mysite/_config.php file and that it contains the relevant entries and text as per one of you previous posts.
