In the newest version of pnp powershell (1.7.0), I am trying these commands

Changing theme to one of the out of the box ones

Set-PnPWebTheme -Theme "Teal"

But if I use a name of a custom theme I've deployed, it works

Remove sections of the page

$pg = Get-PnPPage -Identity "Home"
$sectionsCount = $pg.Sections.Count
for($i=$sectionsCount-1; $i -ge 0; $i--) {
write-host $i
$pg.Sections.RemoveAt($i)
}
$page = Set-PnPPage -Identity $pg -Publish

Remove an add-in (spfx extension) from a site (not app catalogue)

Uninstall-PnPApp -Identity 150520F1-9488-423C-8006-AC541078B029

But they all do not work. The first one gives a unknown error. The other two does nothing.

Does anyone know what's wrong?

    Hi @RS ,
    There might be some mistake in your cmdlet
    Changing theme to one of the out of the box ones

    Set-PnPWebTheme -Theme MyTheme  
    

    or

    Get-PnPTenantTheme -Name "MyTheme" | Set-PnPWebTheme  
    

    to set the theme named "MyTheme" to the current web.

    Remove sections of the page

    $pg = Get-PnPPage -Identity "Home"  
    $sectionsCount = $pg.Sections  
    for($i=$sectionsCount-1; $i -ge 0; $i--) {  
    write-host $i  
    $pg.Sections.RemoveAt($i)  
    }  
    $page = Set-PnPPage -Identity $pg -Publish  
    

    Remove an add-in (spfx extension) from a site (not app catalogue)

    Uninstall-PnPApp -Identity 99a00f6e-fb81-4dc7-8eac-e09c6f9132fe  
    

    or

    Uninstall-PnPApp -Identity 99a00f6e-fb81-4dc7-8eac-e09c6f9132fe -Scope Site  
    

    It seems your Identity ID format a little different with the example.Please check your app id.

    Tried it. See my exact code

    Connect-PnPOnline -Url "https://mysite.sharepoint.com/sites/TestSite" -Interactive
    Get-PnPTenantTheme -Name "Teal" | Set-PnPWebTheme
    

    this produces

    Get-PnPTenantTheme : Unknown Error
    At C:\SPOnline\Templates\clear_site.ps1:19 char:1
    + Get-PnPTenantTheme -Name "Teal" | Set-PnPWebTheme
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : WriteError: (:) [Get-PnPTenantTheme], ServerException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : EXCEPTION,PnP.PowerShell.Commands.Admin.GetTenantTheme
    

    Ans for removing sections of the page

    Connect-PnPOnline -Url "https://mysite.sharepoint.com/sites/TestSite" -Interactive
    $pg = Get-PnPPage -Identity "Home"
    $sectionsCount = $pg.Sections.Count
    for($i=$sectionsCount-1; $i -ge 0; $i--) {
        write-host $i
        $pg.Sections.RemoveAt($i)
    }
    $page = Set-PnPPage -Identity $pg -Publish
    
    Disconnect-PnPOnline
    

    It prints out 1 and then 0 (as I have 2 sections on the page). But then If I refresh the page, the sections are still on the page.

    And for the last command

    Uninstall-PnPApp -Identity 99a00f6e-fb81-4dc7-8eac-e09c6f9132fe -Scope Site
    

    I don't need -Scope Site as that is if the addin comes from a site collection app catalogue. Mine comes from the tenant app catalogue.
