  • Auto complete (membernames) not working??

    When I go to type a name in the PM's, Search for a User, or Member, it will not auto complete and show the members who match the first few letters like it does on other boards. I am running 3.8.1. Is there a setting I am missing?

    Make sure AJAX is enabled:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> General Settings -> Disable AJAX Features

    And make sure the DHTML menus are enabled:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Style & Language Settings -> Use 'vBMenu' DHTML Popup Menus?

      I made sure those settings were as specified. It is still not working.

        I suspect there is a customization that is causing this. You can quickly determine this by temporarily disabling your customizations. Try to reproduce it on a default style:

        Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> [Add New Style]

        Create a new style with no parent. Then click that style's name in the Style Manager to view your forum with that style. If the problem goes away on the default style then you know it's a style problem at which point you need to systematically revert your custom templates to isolate the problem.

        If you still have the problem then try disabling your plugins:

        Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Plugin/Hook System

        Also run a file check to look for customized files. Upload the original files if any problems are reported:

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