    Created a new portal in an old DNN instance. Used the Blank Website template.

    The new portal fails to load with the error logged to the exceptions table

    The file '/Portals/_default/Skins/MinimalExtropy/index.ascx' does not exist.

    I cannot find any reference to that skin in any database search, not in the Tabs table, portals, portalsettings, hostsettings, tabmodulesettings, module settings. I even performed a full database text search for "minimal" and the only references I can find are the exceptions that are logged, and two minimalextrophy.gif file references.

    Rather than creating a skin with the name/path referenced above, I really just want to find where it is referenced and fix that. Anyone have any thoughts on where else to look?

      The default skin on the portal was xcillion (sp?), but the ASCX files for that skin didn't exist in the install.

      So I changed it to the same skin as the OTHER portal and now it loads fine.

      My guess is that if the assigned skin fails to load, dnn is defaulting back to minimalextropy (hardcoded somewhere), which ALSO didn't exist, and thus threw the error????

        I just did a pull request to update this in the documentation:

        It should be live soon, but for now

          This should be in the site template file(s).  Whenever I can't find a file or text inside of a file easily, I just use FileLocator Lite.  It's super fast and finds everything.  I've fixed numerous hacked sites with this tool.  Super efficient! :)
