Clear your cache! I've had countless "bug reports" taken care of simply by telling people to clear their cache. Cache can cause all sorts of weirdness. This should be the first thing you do followed by a hard browser refresh.

Problem: CSS/template overrides are not working in non default themes.
Solution: There is an issue with the global $theme variable not being set affecting only some sites that has never been solved. To work around this, I fall back to the default theme when the variable isn't set. For sites with this problem, you need to put your AF theme overrides in your default theme.

Problem: Fatal error: Unsupported operand types in /path/sites/all/modules/advanced_forum/includes/ on line 132 (that number may change)
Solution: This error occurs when your site's theme is not enabled. Go to admin/build/themes and enable it.

Problem: Bullets missing in Artisteer themes.

Problem: The views count is not showing up on the topic list.

Content on multiple sites


I installed Drupal 5.7 (and 6.0 to try out) With the 5.7 I would like to be able to post content on multiple srupal sites. Basically I would like to set up a couple of sites in drupal, with other themes and other modules running on them. When I post some content I would like to be able to select which sites the content would be displayed on. Is this possible? The sites can be subdomains or normal domains.

greetings and thx in advance.

Preferred way to create a cutom front page?

What would be the best way to create a front page that has a different layout than the rest of the site on drupal 6?

To be a bit more specific, I want my header and sidebars to display as usual but only the "main content" area to have a different layout.

Thanks in advance.
