Themes stop working if a child theme contains assets


(Barry van Oudtshoorn) #1

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a new theme, and add some assets to it (for example, an image).
  2. Save this theme.
  3. Choose a different (parent) theme, and add the newly-created theme as a child to it.
  4. Observe that the parent theme no longer works at all.

This could cause issues with small “part” themes which need to be composed into larger ones to be useful. I ran into this creating a “Christmas hats” theme for December…

…which I had hoped to distribute here on Meta, as the lack of Christmas hats is clearly a very significant oversight in core Discourse functionality. :stuck_out_tongue:
