I installed the latest version to test the Turkish translation file. Translation seems almost flawless, but I came across another issue. When I switch to Blue-Chrome theme and click Communicate > Family News (familynews.php), I get the following message:

PHP Error

require_once(/home/abcde/familycms//ui//themes/blue-chrome/templates/familynews/menu.php): failed to open stream: No file or directory

The website is virtually blank; the only user is the Admin and the only addition is the Turkish language file. When I remove the Turkish language folder and switch to English, the result is the same.

    Yea i don't think I updated the blue-chrome theme the last couple of releases.

    What version are you on?

    Hello again,

    Sorry for the really late reply. I've only just realized that a reply was posted here. The version I use is 3.7.0. The problem stems from the problem that, in the templates folder under "blue-chrome", there are only three subfolders (global, poll, home). All the other essential subfolders are missing. In my case, I copied them from the default theme and the problem is now solved. These subfolders should be added over github as well.

    The blue-chrome theme rarely gets updated unfortunately. I've been meaning to just remove it from the main repo, and create a new repo of official themes that can be added.
