If you installed ExpressionEngine using the default theme, the file structure needs to be changed.
- All folders inside themes/ee/site/default/ except for asset should be deleted.
- The themes/ee/site/default/asset/ folder should be moved to themes/user/site/default/asset/.
- The file upload directory path and URL settings need to be changed for the ‘Blog’, ‘Common’ and ‘Home’ upload directories. They were installed pointing to the themes/ee/site/default/asset/img/ folder and need to be updated to reflect their new location in themes/user/site/default/asset/img/.
