Pages imported from 3.7 to 4.2 are retaining induvidual page themes

We have imported/converted a site in 3.7 into a 4.2 site and the individual pages are retaining their themes if the theme was set at the page level in 3.7.

Couple of things:
1. We have removed the second theme from the site and that didn't fix it.
2. The correct theme is set on the template that is applied to the page - but it's still not fixing the issue.
3. When you load the page an alert is popping up at the top that says the deleted theme can't be found. This happens even when the theme is set for the template.

Any ideas how to clear the theme at the page level? I don't want to have to rebuild the pages.

Hello Chip,

I suppose the migration has preserved the names of the themes in the database you can check in table sf_page_templates. To change the currently selected themes please run this API code in the Page_Load method of a webform.

var tManager = PageManager.GetManager();
            var templates = tManager.GetTemplates().Where(t => t.Title == "Template Name");
// put the name of the template
            foreach (var t in templates)
                var draft = tManager.EditTemplate(t.Id);
                draft.Themes.SetString(CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture, "Basic");
//name of the theme that should be used

All the best,
