Hi there

I have just purchased pagelines plus /pro and installed it on a synology NAS...homepage was fine at that point

I also added iBlogPro5 and activated it

now at the top of my homepage I get the message

Unable to locate the main framework files! Make sure the parent theme folder is named correctlly

I am VERY new to all this...so what exactly is named incorrectly, and more importantly, how do I fix it ?

(The website is currently not viewable outside my LAN as Im in the process of building it )

any help much appreciated

Usually that error is thrown if the folder name in which Pagelines was installed has been modified.

If you access your site via FTP, please check that wp-content/themes/pagelines is the spelling. Some people have changed it to hide the fact that they're using our products (they're often developers or site design resellers). When the word pagelines is changed there, all the links have no clue where to look.

Alternatively, if you installed iBlog5 directly via FTP rather than through the Store, it can create errors because the child theme doesn't know where to find the parent framework.

Hi Rob

Thanks for the reply .. it was actually called page lines-2 ( I downloaded the zip file twice and it got renamed by osx )

However changing it back to wp-content/themes/pagelines now loses the error, but also loses everything else...ie the page loads completely blank !

What could now be causing that ?

I really hoped this would all be easy ...(its why I bought pagelines)..hopefully the fix is simple

(it was installed from the store by the way not ftp as the files are still on my NAS on the LAN)

again any help appreciated

You cant simply rename the active theme folder without wordpress freaking out. Change the folder back. Then switch to the wordpress default theme, THEN change the folder name, then reactivate.

      Scratch this topic: the usual way does work. I think I need sleep.
       
      (Couldn't prefix the topic with iblogpro6 because it's not in the topic prefix dropdown).
       
      Anyway, I've tried the usual way, with Danny's Skeleton theme, but it's not working.
       
      Could someone let me know what I need to do?
       
      Thanks

      I don't want to keep the pagelines, html5, or css3 icons in the solid footer. I don't see how to get rid of them. They're there even if I leave the website address blank. How to get rid of them??

      Hi
       
      I thought i had installed this properly a few days ago but now im not sure as i ve seen 2 versions of frameowrk in my themes. (see image)
       
      if i activate the multi coloured fromawork theme i see no error messages, but when i activate the other framework theme i see this again:
       
      Install Error!
      PageLines Framework must be installed in a folder called 'pagelines' to work with child themes and extensions.

      Current path: /home/stopsmok/public_html/ripley-hypnotherapy.co.uk/wp-content/themes/PageLines
       
       
      Will the ilblog not run correctly if i ignore this? i cant see nay issues with the theme?
       
      thanks
       
      ps the site is ripley-hypnotherapy.co.uk
