Dear DotNetNuke Power Users --

Please help, with some questions about themes.

How can one find where a theme is used?

Please advise.

The details are as follows...

I am running DotNetNuke version 8.0.3

When I go to > Host, > Dashboard, > Themes, it says...

Theme = Gravity

In Use = True

...but I do know know where that is used, such as on which pages, etc.

I need to know this because I have a requirement to change the theme to Xcillion for everything, so I need to go to those locations and change from Gravity to Xcillion.

Any help is appreciated.

This is follow-up, regarding my post above.

Note that I did try to do some research and I found this thread...

...and that thread suggests this SQL...

SELECT [TabID],[PortalID],[TabName],[TabPath],[SkinSrc],[ContainerSrc]
FROM {databaseOwner}{objectQualifier}Tabs

...but that SQL did NOT work for me, as it reported nothing about Gravity....

...and so, I still seek an answer.

What do you think?

Please advise.

It can also be set as the fallback skin:
Check out \DotNetNuke.config
        <skininfo folder="/MinimalExtropy/" default="index.ascx" admindefault="index.ascx" />
        <containerinfo folder="/MinimalExtropy/" default="title_grey.ascx" admindefault="title_grey.ascx" />
It can be set as the portal skin:

SELECT     PortalID, SettingName, SettingValue, CreatedByUserID, CreatedOnDate, LastModifiedByUserID, LastModifiedOnDate, CultureCode
    FROM         PortalSettings
    WHERE     (SettingName = 'DefaultAdminSkin') OR
                          (SettingName = 'DefaultPortalSkin') OR
                          (SettingName = 'DefaultAdminContainer') OR
                          (SettingName = 'DefaultPortalContainer')

Or a page skin:

SELECT    DISTINCT  PortalAlias.PortalID, Tabs.TabName, Tabs.TabID, Tabs.TabPath, Tabs.IsDeleted, Tabs.SkinSrc, Tabs.ContainerSrc
    FROM         PortalAlias INNER JOIN
      Tabs ON PortalAlias.PortalID = Tabs.PortalID
      Where NOT(SkinSrc is null and ContainerSrc = null)
      Order by PortalID, SkinSrc, ContainerSrc

I really appreciate your help and it helped me get unblocked. Thanks SO much.

Just FYI, here is what happened to me.

I ran the SQL, but did not report anything about the culprit Gravity theme.

I checked "DotNetNuke.config" and found something.

I changed from this...


skininfo folder Gravity

containerinfo folder Gravity

skinningdefaults this...


skininfo folder Xcillion

containerinfo folder Xcillion


...and now DotNetNuke reports Theme=Gravity and InUse=False which is the goal.

I am all set now.
