I tried to convert an existing Joomla 1.5 template to a 1.6.
I didn't change much. Changed the version number in templateDetails.xml and added folders to the file as well.
I uploaded my template via Dreamweaver ftp. At first Joomla 1.6 backend did not see my template. I went to install and hit "Discover" and it found it.
So I then clicked on it, installed and activated it.
On the Front End, I got an error stating "The template for this display is not available. Please contact a Site administrator." I did a search on Google and could not find much on this. The only think I found was a guy who had the same problem and said that after a while the problem sorted itself out and went away. Weird.
So I switched to another template, atomic, and that one gave the same error message. I figured I must have really screwed something up.
This was yesterday. I went home, and when I came back this morning, atomic was working on the Front End again.
So I went and tried to switch it back to MY new template, and no dice, same error. I've searched and searched and tried changing A LOT of settings. I am not having any luck. I'm not sure if I need to wait it out, or if there is something I am missing when it comes to converting templates.
Anyone have any CLUE what is happening?
