I'm afraid that makes no difference. Would it be worth deleting and recreating a new skin?
I have noticed that the "home" icon as well as other icons in the applications panel have changed from the font-awesome type to colourful type icons. But I still don't have the logo or any of the modifications from the attached .vm files. I have downloaded the .vm files and I don't mind editing them again based on the latest files. I just need to know how to create a new skin that I can customise and be sure it'll work going forward. Please could you help me with specific instructions on how to do this if it's possible? Thanks.
