Custom theme problem

Dec 3, 2014 at 12:12 PM
Hi everyone,

I created a custome theme and works fine on my local. But when I publish my blog all pages except login.aspx come blank. But if I switch to another theme for example Standart Theme then pages come and no problem.

If there was any problem with my custom theme then it shouldnt work on my localhost but it works fine.

Could you please help with this issue? Do you think it is about deployment or IIS?

Hi BBBasyurt,

You have to think in terms what is different from Local version vs Server version.

Seems to be your custom theme is the issue on the server

I bet you are missing some files on your server, or they need read/write permissions.

FireBug is your friend.

Install Firebug

That will tell you exactly what your issue is.


Post the link to your website here and someone can look at it for you.

I find the best thing to do is the following:
  1. Use Web Deploy if you can
  2. If using FTP don't upload file by file, instead zip it and only ftp the zip folder.
  3. Then unzip on server
When having issue I find dong the following can help:
  1. Stop your application pool
  2. ReStart it
Check for issues

If that does not work then delete everything on server and reupload.

I find those steps the fastest way to get things working server side.
