Loading your website with the default theme

Overview

Users can load their website temporarily with the default DNN so that it can be used to troubleshoot whether a custom theme is preventing a site from loading properly or whether there is a problem with the site itself.

 

Solution

  1. Open your favourite web browser.
  2. Navigate to your website URL but add the following string at the end of the URL: 

    ?skinsrc=/Portals/_default/Skins/Cavalier/Main&containersrc=/Portals/_default/Containers/Cavalier/Notitle
    For example, if your website is http://www.mywebsite.com you should try to navigate to: 

    http://www.mywebsite.com?skinsrc=/Portals/_default/Skins/Cavalier/Main&containersrc=/Portals/_default/Containers/Cavalier/Notitle

  3. Your website will launch with the default theme. 

 

Testing

After loading the default theme:

  1. If you see any errors, you can confirm that this issue is not theme related.
  2. If you do not see any errors, you can confirm that the issue is with the skin.
