I've installed this template and it looks great, but if I try to change any of the template specific settings, it doesn't apply for some reason.
I think this might be down to permissions, I've set everything to writable under lib/tpl/vector/conf , but can't seem to change any settings.
Can you advise?
This is not your fault and the "lib/tpl/vector/conf" dir should be read-only (as these files are just providing meta data and default values for the dokuwiki config parser).

Fixed. Release will be there tomorrow.
New release is out, just get it from https://www.dokuwiki.org/template:vector - simply uncompress and copy it over your current /lib/tpl/vector for an upgrade (see https://www.dokuwiki.org/template:vector#update for detailed instructions)
cool, thanks for the fix :)
