It seems that the pages are not visible on the menu. DISPLAY_PAGES_ON_MENU is set to true in The pages are generated with THEME = 'notmyidea' but not with THEME = 'pelican-blueidea'.

Am I the only ne to encounter this bug?
Otherwise, the theme is working as expected.

After some tests I finally managed to get rid of the bug. I simply copied the content of the templates folder of the default theme (notmyidea) in the the templates folder of pelican-blueidea. It works. It seems that pelican updated the file base.html. Thanks again for this nice theme.

I spent a long time troubleshooting this today using the same theme. In case anyone else ever comes across this, here's my fix. I'm not sure the entire templates folder needs to be replaced. The template had an all uppercase variable name when it should have been lowercase. In the file templates/base.html :

The line {% for pg in PAGES | sort(attribute=PAGES_SORT_ATTRIBUTE) %} should be
{% for pg in pages | sort(attribute=PAGES_SORT_ATTRIBUTE) %}

Thanks @maneesha I think it's the case. Pelican author mentions it in the documentation the problem is that many of these themes are completely out of date / abandoned
