WordPress "forgets" selected theme, frequently falls back to default. (38 posts)

    If you look under wp-content/themes do you see the wp-mobile directory? And if so, is it set to the same permissions as the other themes?

    Those appear to be the key to the whole thing. Folks forget to add the wp-mobile theme files or the perms are wrong.

    Best of luck with it.

    If you look under wp-content/themes do you see the wp-mobile directory?

    Yes, as I said, I followed the install instructions. There are only 3 steps. :P

    And if so, is it set to the same permissions as the other themes?

    Yes the permissions are the same.

    But, I've already disabled to see if it fixes it. I will get back to you in the next day or two to see if it's happened again.

    I'm also having this exact problem with my website. Has anyone "found a cure" for this problem yet?

    I have been having the same problem, but have not yet found a satisfactory answer. Check out this post for a similar problem, esp. toward the end. Perhaps some of it will help you, but it hasn't helped me yet. Good luck!

    I've found a solution and haven't seemed to encounter any complications with it yet.

    All I did was renamed the folder of the theme I wanted to use to "default". After I did this it hasn't changed back.

    Although you'll probably have to change this every time you want to select a new theme.

    I too have been having the same problem, but I changed the chmod for the default theme and it appears to be working now and there are no errors present after doing so.

    I've been having this problem too. I like one of the last suggestions to rename my custom theme to 'default'. Hopefully it works for me too.

    I was having the same problem and i debugged its origin:

    [client XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX] PHP Fatal error: out of dynamic memory in yy_create_buffer() in /var/www/vhosts/domain.tld/httpdocs/wp-blog-header.php on line 21
    [client XX.XX.XX.XX] PHP Fatal error: out of dynamic memory in yy_create_buffer() in /var/www/vhosts/domain.tld/httpdocs/wp-includes/template-loader.php on line 14

    It runs out of memory and falls back to default theme. Why is this hapening? no idea... but i'll consider renaming mine to default.
