Errors after installing NatSkin

I installed Foswiki and then NatSkin on top of it. Afterwards I got some rendering errors (see screenshots). I installed all Plugins that are listed as required (NatSkin). Am I missing something?

The first image showing %WEBLINK... is due to an unlisted NatSkin dependency for WebLinkPlugin. Just install the plugin and that issue should disappear.

I'm not as sure about your second image. the %GETTOPICTITLE... macro is from DBCacheContrib (and DBCachePlugin) which is a listed NatSkin dependency. If you don't have it installed, do so. If it is installed, I'm not sure what's happening there.

Thank you very much, LynnwoodBrown. I installed the two plugins and now the rendering errors are gone.

I read that both these Plugins are optional. Therefore I did not install them in the first place. Are the other plugins, that are also listed as optional (ImagePlugin, PageOptimizerPlugin) required, too?

I don't believe either of those plugins are required. However, I did notice some time back (see Tasks.Item12760) that there is another required plugin that is not listed: SetVariablePlugin. As noted in the task, without this, there's problems with using the "Settings" tab (in edit). Sorry about the confusion with these ommission, but NatSkin is really excellent and I'm sure you won't regret it after you have it up and running. Since you're starting with NatSkin, you might find use in a support question I recently updated regarding customizing default NatSkin styling: Question1335.
