Odd error with the PopKong theme: Invocation of method 'isPersonal' threw exception NullPointer

I'm investigating an error related to the PopKong theme.


produces this error:

<<< Error occurred during template rendering: Invocation of method 'isPersonal' in class com.burlesontech.popkong.theme.VelocityThemeHelper threw exception java.lang.NullPointerException at pages/main.vmd[line 97, column 48]. Contact your administrator for assistance. >>>

Said line refers to <<<$!sitemeshPage.getProperty("page.sidebar")>>> and the ThemeHelper.java seems to be choking on <<<return spaceManager.getSpace(spaceKey).isPersonal();>>>

Look familiar to anyone? I know the theme's been End-Of-Lifed, but I'm curious if anyone else has experienced this error.

Hi Brad,

I've tried to find the root cause but I wasn't successful. have you tried to remove and install the plugin again? Also, are you running the latest version of that Plugin in Confluence?

Sorry for not being of much help here.
