Ok, I agree, but all the answers have helped.

Back to using v2, this is the stage where I am at.

I have followed the Dispatcher Quickstart guide to the letter
and it works perfectly (forgets to mention to add 
to . So this I have completed no problem.

Now, instead of altering pelt.fv I thought I would instead copy it
and call it pili.fv, saving in the same folder as pelt.fv.
I then rename project.theme=pili in
re-run forrest run and I get Internal Server Error with :-

"ElemTemplateElement error: Found more than one template named: noFt-body"
