    ​I'll need to wait until the fix is released, hopefully in the next update.

    ​Thanks Matt. Issues 1, 2 and 3 are the ones which are preventing themes from being released - not only from myself, but other designers. If they're fixed first, smaller issues such as the language strings are welcome to be delayed until a later date, since those smaller bugs don't actually impact the development and import/export of themes.  
     
    Edit: Just saw your ticket reply saying 1 and 2 have been fixed. Stoked to hear!

    On the contrary, a staff member could have just replied weeks ago and told us this was possible.  ​The lack of documentation or replies has left many designers like myself in the dark. This feature was in 3.x and was vital after every upgrade, so it makes complete sense to include it by default in 4.x - honestly, I'm surprised it was neglected for such an extended period.
    Not all designers use DM (I've been avoiding it due to the bugs which plague it), so accessing those files and doing it ourselves - assuming our editors support change logs, which mine doesn't - isn't efficient, nor ideal.
    With that said, I'm grateful for the solution which has been provided, and I'm sure my customers will be too.

    Perfect, that's all we needed! A few theme bugs left to fix, and we'll all be happy designers!

    ​The issue hasn't been fixed on my development board so I'm not sure what the status of this bug is (or even if a solution exists yet)

    ​Many of the "pro" designers have been unable to release themes due to the bugs with the theme system - detailed themes will come soon once the bugs have been fixed. Any 3.x theme can easily be ported to 4.x, regardless of the images or complexity.. Themes still use HTML/css, there's no limitation on what can or can't be done.

    @Rikki has contacted a couple of us via PM regarding difference reports, so that seems to be a positive sign.

    4.0.3 and 4.0.4 have been released, both without theme documentation. I'm not normally one who keeps bumping topics, but since we're still no closer to receiving a response from staff, I almost have no choice at the moment. We're now 5 versions into a supported release, and while I'm sure this topic has been seen by the developers, a lack of a reply is becoming quite disappointing to be honest.

    Yep, it's easy to reproduce. Happens every time DM is disabled, or every time the theme is imported.
    You're right actually - it happens with "Select" settings too since the ipsf_guestStyle in my other report is a Select setting.
  11. ehren. added a post in a topic: Theme updates (code changes)   

    Despite other show-stopping bugs with the theme system which are preventing my themes from being released, I still have my fingers crossed that we'll at least be notified of changes for 4.0.3 which is due for release in a couple of days. Can one staff member please just clarify what steps are being made to help designers with upgrades? While I'm sure this topic has been seen by staff, it has seemingly gone without assistance.

    This bug sounds similar to one I reported a few weeks back. Still waiting for a solution and it's halting the release of any of my themes. No further updates via the ticket incase you were wondering.
    The affected areas are those with "Text" or "Text Area" theme settings. And the bug also happens on a fresh theme install as you mentioned.
  13. ehren. added a comment: [4.0.2] lang.php gets nearly wiped on theme import   

    ​I noticed the same - however when viewing the child theme settings in the admin cpanel, the language bits work. So I've just assumed that the child themes inherit from the parent lang.php file.

    Certain theme resources not importing
    I've created a theme and have replaced the default_photo.png image with my own version. The image works fine on the theme.
    However, if the theme is exported and imported (essentially replicating a fresh install of the theme), the image breaks on the front end. If I go to Manage Resources in the ACP and search for default_photo.png, this is the result:

    If I click on the default_photo.png link in the "Name" column, a new tab opens and the image works, however the image in the "Preview" column doesn't work as shown in the screenshot.
    The URL for the preview image and the frontend image (which don't work) is: /uploads/set_resources_7/84c1e40ea0e759e3f1505eb1788ddf3c_default_photo.png.246bac0a94dd9dfa7eb533d4a15f9134.png
    The URL for the "Name" version (which works) is: /uploads/set_resources_7/default_photo.png.8b17cc71efcaf64ac562659da3b0b686.png
    Currently happening on 4.0.2

  15. ehren. added a comment: 4.0.1 > 4.0.2: "Inherited" template files are now "modified"   

    Further note, the "inherited" template files are changed to "modified" whenever Designers Mode is enabled and then disabled - so this bug isn't only caused by the upgrade. No files are edited while DM is enabled, but if the "sync changes" box is ticked, it incorrectly changes inherited files to modified for child themes.
