    Try reuploading the default vbulletin showgroups.php page.

    If that still doesn't fix it, try disabling your modifications/plugins and see if you still have this problem.Note: To temporarily disable the plugin system, edit includes/config.php and add this line right under <?php

    PHP Code:

      The site is down because my hosting (fatcow) has a 75,000 query SQL limit and I was running maintenance tools on the site. Bloddy ridiculous, I'm so pissed at them. I need a new host, preferably in Canada somewhere that doesn't have such a huge restriction on shared hosting.

      I have made the modifications to the config.php file so when the SQL limit resets in an hour I will test to see if it corrects the issue.

      After disabling the plugins, the issue still remains on the forum. What else can you recommend?

        I've never seen it show just a 0... so with that being said and the fact you disabled plugins I'm really unsure what to try except...

        See if reducing the number of usergroups shown will result in it showing properly. In each Usergroup you can adjust the setting:

        Viewable on Show Groups

        (Sets whether or not to show members of this group on the 'View Forum Leaders' page)
        If your attempting to show all groups it could present a issue and not show any or even a blank page. Still w/ it showing a zero it does not seem this is the issue but it won't hurt to try and see if reducing the amount of groups shown will help .
