It looks fine to me. I do not see any errors.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

You did clear the cache on your PC right.
Tried hitting control + f5 at the same time while on that white page.
Thats some thing I have had to do.

I'm not sure I understand properly. If you get the same error, how can you also get a white screen?

Was that a smart comment? I sure hope not… I get the error when the screen does come up or I get the white screen, whatever it feels like doing at the time.

I'm just trying to help you solve your problem, and it's frustrating when little or ambiguous information is presented to help me do it, and I therefore needed to ask for clarification.

I'm not sure what would cause this, as we tested this bug fix quite carefully. A white page might be returned if the server is overloaded, but that doesn't explain the error message still occurring.

However, you could try unticking the tick box that says that FTP is required, as for some servers (ones without PHP 'safe mode' turned on), generating a theme doesn't require it. If you do that, make sure the incomplete theme is deleted from the themes directory, or that you choose a different theme name.

I understand. When I attempt to use the wizard, I get a white screen.. regardless if the option to use FTP is ticked or not.

As you can see via the site, only part of it turns green…the rest of it remains blue. So basically its a Blue, Black and Green site which makes it look awful.

Also refreshing doesn't help. I am going to try to install it on a different server I have access too. Its possible the problem could be with the server and not the script.

That did it… there is something wrong with that server. I moved it and it works perfectly!

Thanks for everyone's help
