Switch theme does not work

    Hi everyone, I’ve recently installed Publii and downloaded a couple of themes.

    If I try to select a new theme, and click on both “Save Settings” or “Save & Peview”, the buttons are disabled and nothing happens, even if I wait for a minute.

    An example of what I experience:

    Switching themes works fine on Apple Mac. But maybe if you can provide more information relating to your installation: your operating system and version, your Publii version, etc.

    Hi, thanks for the feedback, I’ve got:

    MacOS Monterey 12.5.1 (21G83)

    MacBook Pro (14-inch, 2021)
    Apple M1 Pro 16Gb
    Publii Version 0.41.1 (0.41.1)

    Small update, if I close and open Publii again the theme is correctly switched.

    Good catch! I’ve been able to reproduce your bug when using macOS Ventura 13.1 (22C65). Though when switching the theme from ‘Simple’ to ‘Technews’, the switch seemed to work as expected. However, when I chose a different theme — ‘Art Gallery’ in this example — was I able to reproduce the bug. While the ‘save’ then didn’t appear to work, as you said, when Publii was closed and restarted, a check then showed the ‘Art Gallery’ switch was indeed made. So looks like a minor bug.

    Exactly the same thing happens on Windows – buttons on the top greyed out, no preview. But clicking “Preview your changes” on the left sidebar works, and the theme actually changes.

    In the next version of Publii this bug will be fixed – I have found possible reason 🙂
