  • After upgrading from 5.0.4 Patch 1 to 5.0.5, problems with forums within a single category

    After upgrading to 5.0.5 Thursday evening, I notice that in one category where I have seven forums, users, moderators and administrators are not able to:
    • create new topics
    • edit messages
    • share photos
    • post links
    • upload attachments
    • toggle advanced editor
    • add smilies
    • moderators/admins can't bring up the moderators panel

    These features were working in all forum categories in 5.0.4 and stopped working in one category upon upgrading to 5.0.5. There have been no changes in permissions by any of the moderators or administrators in that one category.

    I have attached photos of the non-working icons...

    These seven forums in the category are our most used forums.

    Same case with me. I was suggested to run upgrade script once again. I did that but the probllem still persists. I reverted t to 5.0.4 as I had backed up before upgrade. Hope someone can point out some solution here!!

    THis is my post:

      I reinstalled the 5.0.5 files again and ran the upgrade script and same thing still happened. I am thinking of copying the 5.0.4 files over the 5.0.5 and running the upgrade script for 5.0.4 and then reinstalling the 5.0.4 patch 1 files.

        Are there parent permissions that disallow some of these functions?

        What happens if you create a new category and move a forum into this one (just for testing puposes)? Are you then able to post there?

          Thanks... I checked parent permissions earlier and couldn't find anything prohibiting those actions..

        Do you have an announcement in that forum? If so, disable it and see if you still have the same issue.

          That was it! Lynne, thanks for the help.

          I am out of town for a convention tomorrow where I have two talks. One of those talks is about some of the forums on my system. Your help was timely and very much appreciated!

          Thank you.
