Basic theme not detected when publishing website


Interesting error:
Parser Error Message: Theme 'Basic' cannot be found in the application or global theme directories.
When publishing the website, the theme Basic will not get published by the Publishing Wizard unless the Basic folder under App_Themes has some kind of content in it. If you publish and then try to run the site, you will get the above message b/c the directory is not created. Perhaps a placeholder file / blank css file can be added to this file so that the correct directory structure is created?

Publishing Wizard support isn't intended - this will also have issue with the App_Cache and Assets folders that get content written to them (and also may be empty). If you want an automated deployment setup I recommend Web Deployment Projects
