Please give a snippet of settings that leads to the error, we might improve the settings validator based on your input.

Create the directory indicated by ASKBOT_EXTRA_SKINS_DIR (for example: skin/my_askbot). This directory must have the same structure as static/common or static/default (ie: countains the directories media and templates). The files in your skin directory will override the files of common and default.


Finally, in your site, log you as root user and in settings->Logos and HTML <head> parts choose the name of your skin.
