I have a real headaque here
I have 5 sites using this template
I made them all when siteshaper still was 1.7.3
Now I have tried to update them to 2.5 for long time but it fails every time and i have to restore from backup

I do get the update function in backpanel and it seems to go through ok, BUT i get a blank frontpage.
I then login to admin panel i go to discover and update database and it seems to go through OK
However, still blank frompage. I then want to disable all modules but when disabeling, page goes blank on back panel as well.

If I select another default template, i do get the banner from that template but no data what so ever

The site is :

Any ideas what goes wrong?
I need to update as there is a vonurability wiht the bluestork template that already have affected one of my site

Kind Regards

I am not quite sure what would be causing this. I just tested this locally and any template (including this one) upgrades from 1.7.3 through the Joomla Backend without any issues. It is possible there is a server setting that is stopping Joomla from updating correctly. Nothing would really be changed in the Template files they are all loaded the same just the improved version of Joomla.
