When i visit my site now i get a msg like this:

Warning: scandir(/themes/_config.php) [function.scandir]: failed to open dir: Not a directory in /sapphire/core/ManifestBuilder.php on line 272

Warning: scandir() [function.scandir]: (errno 20): Not a directory in /sapphire/core/ManifestBuilder.php on line 272

Under it i see my page but its distorted.
When pressing F5 its back to normal.

It's a pretty common error.

It can occur if you changed your projectname in _config.php, but did not changed the name of the project-folder. Maybe you let it by "mysite". But those names have to be the same.

in config i changed template from blackcandy to my name i have, and folder is named the same.
strange error to accure since its working and i see template under this msg, but the site is aligned left. pressing F5 and its all perfect and no error msg.

Looking right now and didnt get this msg but I do get some XML error but im to fast with reflexes so my hand went to F5 before i had the chance to copy it - im a bad surfer.

If I change back to blackcandy in _config.php its all good. change to "atten4" witch is the tempalte dir name i get this msg but just sometimes. confusing really.

Sorry this did not work for you, but it helped me some days ago.

Just take a look into other threads, e.g.

I noticed something today when making final things on the design. mysite and template dirs had both _config files in them, removed from template dir and its okey now :)
added to showcase aswell

love this cms - woho! so simple to make my own design work perfect.
Challange will now be to make more advanced stuff but this was a good start to learn.
