    It doesn't as far as I am aware. The OS really isn't the issue here. It would be how PHP parses and interprets the files. It seemingly has no problems or it would return a parse error and die.

    I have absolutely no idea why you're seeing the ^M in the files. They do not exist in the files that are shipped with vBulletin. Any file. Personally, I would have replaced it with a new default.

    I don't know why you can't create new channels either. Creating channels isn't related to styles. This file formatting issue would not be the reason. A channel is just a node, are you able to create other nodes on the site? Topics, replies, articles, private messages, blogs, and groups are all examples of different nodes.

    A support ticket with full server access will most likely be necessary to diagnose the issue.

      There is a utility that runs on install (only) that will write these files if they do not exist on the server. However, these should use the native new line for the OS. Most people use Linux servers. If this utility was used and you were utilizing a Windows IIS server, then they could be inserted. Even then, they shouldn't cause problems on most modern servers. If they did, your site wouldn't even run. It would present a white screen and log a fatal parse error from PHP.
      I am really behind on my setup of BB. That's not your fault. Quite honestly I'm disabled and generally in pain most of the time. That's part of the reason I'm building this. A sense of revenue from advertising. At any rate I have found several different vbulletin manuals and I don't know which one to trust. The one that seems most comfortable comes off of the admin CPP. The one on your site seems to have just been rewritten and it's just a bunch of links.

      At any rate, I have debug mode turned on. Piece of cake can I use to VI to do it. I know your instructions say to downloaded but I'm a Linux hosting company and very familiar on the command line. So I'm at the point of setting the default Style to be used site-wide. I've said it to Black / Red. I've set it so is to not allow the user to change the style. I mean I could go in and make logos for everything but I just don't want to. What I'd like to do is get it set and then find an icon set a familiar icon set. But that'll come later.

      I'm at the point where it's asking me if I'd like to store the CSS style sheets and SVG images as files? Although I've read the help pop up I'll be honest I don't understand what it's saying. I used to install VB all the time for customers and I know it quite well. But you've gotten quite advanced in my time off with cancer. I'll admit I don't know quite what I'm doing.

      Before I can get to the point of creating what you now called channels instead of groups are sub forums I need to be straight from the beginning on a default Style throughout the site. A minor detail I know but important nonetheless.

      Now that I have debug mode turned on I will get to the point where I will attempt to create a welcome group underneath Forum and then inline with the welcome group will be major categories and then subgroups or threads or channels or whatever they are to be called these days. Such as directly underneath Welcome might be Art -> Photography -> Black & White. Nested channels? Sub forums? I don't know the terminology anymore.

      I will be able to report back the error it's being kicked off once I get past this point. But to answer the initial question, I can create a group. Except When selecting a custom style it doesn't appear until you back up one screen and then it shows up. In the meantime it pops off with a PHP error. It'll be better explained when I show it to you. But it's the error at the top of this thread by another user that never got resolved. So yes, the group or the channel or the sub-forum or whatever it's to be called can be created it just creates an error in the process.

        Here are the errors that occurred when using red / black as the selected Style when trying to add a child Channel underneath form. It's the same as before.

        Code:
        An unexpected error was returned: 'Call to a member function resetForcedStyles() on null'
        
        Exception trace:

        I am running Plesk Obsidian which returned the same error as the person a year ago. It's not the control panel. The server runs CentOS 7.9 .x 64 bit and current are reasonably current PHP and MySQL-MariaDB.

          Since you can't provide the information actually needed as outlined in the sticky topic "Read before requesting support," You'll need to open a support ticket with complete access to the server. SFTP, Direct Database Access, and access to the vBulletin AdminCP. "Reasonably current" provides no information that allows us to help you. The OS version is irrelevant.

          If you're just using a single style, I suggest setting it as the default style under Settings → Options → Style & Language Options.

            No need to be harsh. What sticky are you referring to? I'm not unwilling to do anything. I was only directed to a link I've how to turn on debug. If I've missed something I'll go back with your direction.
