    In “Preview your change” when the progress bar reaches 80% the error “Rendering process failed. An error (1002) occurred during parsing index.hbs file. rendererInstance is not defined” appears.

    In “Preview your change” when the progress bar reaches 80% the error “false” appears.

    The problem is on Mellisa (v., Cortado (v., Tattoo (v. in Tattoo the progress bar reaches 98%.
    No problem in N-Tech (v. and other free themes.

    After reinstall v. 0.35.2 the program crashes on the splash screen. 🙁

    I have completely removed Publii v.0.35.3 in Windows:

    • uninstall program
    • delete Program/Publii and %Appdata%/Publii folders.

    After reinstalling Publii v.0.35.2 everything works good.

    I’m having the same problem on a mac. Where did you find the older version Publii v.0.35.2?

    Please update your themes to the latest versions, and I’m sure it will work.

    I feel stupid. After updating the themes it’s working. Thank’s.

    but what about those who have a custom theme with no updates ?

    Avatar photo[anonymous]

    @karlchen – update of Publii will be available for download in a few minutes

    @elmo You shouldn’t. The problem is because there is a lack of compatibility with older versions of themes, but we’re already fixing it and uploading the new Publii packages to the server.

    @karlchen After all, I suggest you update your custom themes. All you have to do is change the following code:
    `{{responsiveSrcSet @config.custom.uploadHero}}
    `{{responsiveImageAttributes @config.custom.uploadHero}}

    i made a backup before updating to .3

    please tell me where are the above lines located, i mean in which file exactly ?

    Avatar photoBob

    @karlchen It’s hard to say if you use a custom theme but generally this piece of code you can find into index.hbs, tag.hbs, author.hbs, post.hbs ‎⁨(Documents ▸ ⁨Publii⁩ ▸ ⁨sites⁩ ▸ ⁨YOUR_SITE ▸ ⁨input⁩ ▸ ⁨themes⁩ ▸ ⁨YOUR_THEME)

    Unfortunately I still have problems with Cortado (v. and Mellisa (v. just updated.

    For testing I’ve also rename “theme-override” folders in “theme-override.bk”.

    Avatar photoBob

    @gpsblues I’ve tested all themes and I’m sure all of them work as should.  Try applying my suggestion for karchlen in you overridden files.

    Avatar photo[anonymous]

    Sorry, Mellisa v.

    I’ve delete mellisa-override folder and overwritten all files in mellisa folder…

    The error continues

    FYI: A new, hotfix version of Publii 35.3 (build 12100) has been uploaded to our servers. Please download and reinstall the app, now it will work with your old themes too.

    @gpsblues It’s not possible. If you still have valid Premium support please create a ticket here.

    Hi Bob,

    with new download all problem are solved!

    Very good, thank you!

    Avatar photo[anonymous]

    Hi there. I downloaded Publii, both 0.35.3 and 0.36 just now and was trying to work with the Simple theme.

    As soon as I entered the name of the site and wanted to preview, the rendering process crashed.

    Can anyone please help?
