    Although I think you really shouldn't, some users still use the "Minimal Extropy Theme" I created  10 years ago on DNN9.
    As fixing the errors is not that difficult, I fixed the DNN9 errors.
    But you should realize that the skin is not HTML5, not responsive and partly uses tables for layout.
    You should really move your site to a more modern Theme IMO, on the other hand not upgrading DNN is worse than not switching to a more modern skin.
    If you want to stay with Minimal Extropy on DNN9 for a bit longer:

      Timo,

      I've never before known who to ask about the skin name. Is there something in your educational background that led to that?

          Aha! Blame it on Nik!. I'll try to remember to ask him at Summit.

          Minimal Extropy is a play on the phrase Maximal Entropy. That is a term used in the Statistical Mechanics branch of physics and moved to Information Theory. I think it is now used more broadly in statistics of parge systems.

          The idea is that when you know nothing about statistical distributions, you assume that they take on a maximal levof randomness. Or, the have maximal entropy, as entropy is a term that quantifies the amount of disorder (randomness) is a system.

          Good for scientists and for cocktail party conversations ...

              To give my 2cts: Extropianism is an "evolving framework of values and standards for continuously improving the human condition". I think (or I think to remember) the name was given to the skin to show a minimal set of possibilities that can be done with a DNN skin, to get improved based on the needs. Or at least, that was my theory about it.

              Happy DNNing!

                I had no idea that extropy was a real word ... and in all of these years I never bothered to find out. Thanks.
