  • [Forum] Oops! Forum looks appalling!!!

    Hi chaps,

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    We did the upgrade this morning. For a moment things looked fine (well, they looked exactly like this website as expected). Somehow, it now looks like this and I'm at a loss.

    It looks to me like we've somehow reverted back to our Vb3.xxx version without the graphics and branding showing up to make it work. Is it a CSS problem? If so, how do we get the proper VB4 CSS back?

    As I said, any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated?

    Many thanks,
    Cricko.

    You need to redo the upload and ensure all images are being uploaded too.

      Thanks CB.

      Do you mean redo the whole VB4 upgrade upload?
      Given that things worked for a short while, any idea what happened?

        Yes it's a CSS problem. Although I'm not sure what to suggest.

          Do you have any templates that need reverting?

            No. On your suggestion, I just clicked GO on the "Revert all templates" option and it said "Nothing to do". (Thanks though).

                Do you have any plugins?

                Do you have any custom styles?

                  All of your image paths seem to have "forum.php" appended to them for some reason. Right click where an image should be and choose "image properties" or "view image" if using firefox.

                  For example - here is the url to your logo image:

                  http://www.shrimperzone.com/vb/forum...etin4_logo.png

                  remove /forum.php and the image loads. Check your path fields and possibly stylevar imagepaths... not sure what would cause this to happen.

                    Your bburl is incorrect in your Settings. It should not include a trailing slash or a php filename, it should be the directory that your forum files live in.

                      Yes. All the plugins were deactivated and still are.

                      Custom styles. On vB3 we had loads. When I go into the Style Manager, the current selection is "VB4 Default Style" (checked/ticked) while "Default Style (vB3 Style - incompatible) is unchecked/unticked. When I then look at "All style options", the new vb4 styles have been set in the header, head include and footer. On all of the other options it says "The following style options are obsolete and are available here for reference purposes only. Style options such as these can now be edited in the Style Variable Editor."

                      BTW I did change the main width table from 100% to 1024 earlier - and reverted back but accorrding to the above, that was an obsolete option anyway. SUrely that couldn't have "knocked out" the CSS which, as I say, was working for a short period after the upgrade!!

                      Thanks again Andy for your assistance.

                          Sorry. Somehow I saw the post from Andy but missed the others. Seems like we're on to something so I'll go check. Thanks everyone.

                              THAT seems to have brought the forums back to life (great news!!) but I still seem to have the issue with the images.

                              Showing myself up here now, but how do I check/fix the "path fields and stylevar imagepaths..."

                              Thanks again guys.
