No suitable loader found for [[THEME NAME]]

I have been using Orchard for some time now and I really enjoy it! On a new site I am working on, I have created a new theme and also some custom modules, both created from the orchard command line interface and then added to my Visual Studio project.

In working on one of my modules, I was looking at the debug log and noticed the entry: [119] Orchard.Environment.Extensions.ExtensionManager - No suitable loader found for extension "PurpleAndGold". PurpleAndGold is the name of the Theme that I created and it is enabled. Furthermore, it is working just fine!

Everything I see online about this error has to do with modules. What can I look at to see what is causing this error. I don't see any affect it is having on the site, but I also don't like seeing the error being logged each time the site loads.

I've never seen this on any of the other sites I have created.

Is there a project file in your theme?

Hi Bertrand,

Sorry I'm just checking back in on this.

There is a PurpleAndGold.csproj file in the \src\Orchard.Web\Themes\PurpleAndGold directory.

Can you file a bug and attach your packaged theme to it?
