Hi jfhencken,

The current version is a copy of the Elemental theme from 5.7. It should work without issues in v8 though.

When concrete5 version 8.2 comes out, it might be a good time to update it.

Thank you for your response.

I have regularly used Cloneamental on v5.7+ but when I tried it on a fresh install of v8.1.0 I could not get it to work.

I could access it in the Design Theme area and it was there along with Elemental. I could select Cloneamental and then Customize but when I chose another color scheme and then selected to either save for current page only or for the entire website it would not remember the change in theme or the change in theme color scheme. It would always revert back to the Elemental theme and it would say the page was still an Elemental theme page.

Am I missing something?

I installed Cloneamental on a fresh install of concrete5 8.1.0 and was able to change the color presets per page and for the full site without issues.

Please list the specific steps to recreate your issue.

I was able to change the theme to Cloneamental on individual pages but the "Entire Site" save option never worked for me.

Please see my attached PDF for my step by step process on another clean install of Concrete5-8.1.0. The PDF also includes the environment info.

At least for me the “Entire Site” save option does not appear to be working. At best it only saves the changes on the home page. I thought it might be a cache issue so I put all the cash in development mode and cleared the cache several time. I also opened the page in different browsers and refreshed the page to see if perhaps it had really made changes to all the site pages.
For me, the only way to change existing pages over to Cloneamental is to do them page by page.
And it also appears that every new page will have to manually be set to Cloneamental. As I can't determine if there is a way to make Cloneamental the default theme - new pages always default to Elemental.

Thanks for taking the time to look at this.

I reviewed your PDF.

One question I have is the Cloneamental theme activated?
Dashboard > Pages & Themes > Themes

Thank you for that heads up. No it was not activated. It is now. And I said yes to having it set it as the theme on all my pages.

I assume the all other Themes are still available but only one can be the "active" theme?

Thank you!
