  • [Forum] 404 error when trying to update the assetsmanager template in templates&styles

    Hello, I'm trying to edit the assetsmanager template for our forums. I can edit anything else and it will correctly update it, but, once I touch that specific template elements, it gives me a 'page not found'. I have tried this on another forum of mine and it works.

    What do you think it can cause this? When I hit 'save' or 'save and reload' it gives me the error. any other template edits OK. I have created a new default skin and it's the same.

    the link there is

    I get the error when the save button sends me to:

    Any idea would be much appreciated, thank you in advance.

    Humour me.

    Try re-uploading template.php.

    And if I'm not mistaken, I think it should be adminfunctions_template.php, but I could be wrong.

      Can you take a screenshot of the error and upload it in a reply?

      Since you're on template.php and you submit to template.php, it is pretty close to impossible to get a 404 error. However if only happens on certain templates, you could be getting a 403 error which means it is forbidden to access the page and there would be a note at the bottom stating a 404 was encountered while trying to retrieve 403.shtml or the custom error page. Could even be a 500 error.

      Both probably track back to overzealous installations of mod_rewrite, mod_rewrite2 or suhosin.

        @microsuck - have uploaded them both, same thing.

        Weird things is that, if I edit assetmanager_detailedview or any other template from there, it works perfectly. Just the assetsmanager template doesn't seem to work.

        @Wayne, would it be OK for you if I provided you the details via PM? Thank you both for your super-fast response.
