  • Showthread.php can't find or display threads

    Hi,

    I just upgraded from vBulletin 3.7.3 to 3.8. Everything looks fine, except that I can't actually view any threads.

    If I navigate to a thread, I get an empty thread:



    If I click a link to go to the latest post, I get an error which says "No thread specified":



    Any assistance would be much appreciated!

    Try rebuilding the thread and forum counters in that order:

    Change CKEditor Colors to Match Style (for 4.1.4 and above)

      Thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunately, this did not work. I did the following, twice to make sure:
      • Rebuild Thread Information
      • Rebuild Forum Information

      Any suggestions?

        Unfortunately this is an indication of a potentially more serious issue.

        To troubleshoot this, first reupload all the original vB non-image files (except install.php). Make sure you upload these in ASCII format and overwrite the ones on the server. Also be sure to upload the admincp files to whichever directory you have set in your config.php file. Then run 'Suspect File Versions' in Diagnostics to make sure you have all the original files for your version and that none show 'File does not contain expected contents':

        Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Diagnostics -> Suspect File Versions

        [Note: In some cases you may also need to remove any of the listed .xml files in the includes/xml directory.]

        Next, disable all plugins.

        Note: To temporarily disable the plugin system, edit config.php and add this line right under <?php

        define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);

        Then if you still have this problem, create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Finally empty your browser cache, close all browser windows then try again. Make sure you change to the new style and view your forums with it.

        Do you have the same problem?
