  • [Forum] Registered users can view mod options in 'What's new'

    Hi all,

    After upgrading to 4.0.2, in 'What's new':
    1. All registered users can view the moderation options. However, they can't perform any mod actions, but why should they be allowed to view all mod tools? In this forum registered users can't see mod tools. Is there a new setting that I'm missing?
    2. I can see that a structural alteration has been applied, since there is now a new column which displays the forum of each new post (in the previous version it appeared under the thread title). However, I'm using a fixed width to my board and forum titles show in a single line under the mod checkbox (see attached).
    3. All searching takes 0 seconds to complete.

    Any suggestions?

      I can't recreate this on my own forum either. 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?
