  • Several Problems after upgrading from 3.8.2 to 5.0.5

    Hi, we were using vB 3.8.2 as our forum software for a long time. Now our hosting company was forcing us to upgrade the PHP Version of the server due to security risks of the old version, but we weren't able to get vB 3.8.2 working with the new PHP Version, so we decided to upgrade to the latest vBB version. The upgrade went fine, but we're facing some problems now:
    • We don't see the Threads & Posts options in the ACP anymore. I can see almost every sector of the ACP, but I can't see any option where i can edit posts or threads. All admins are even mentioned as Super Administrators in the config.php file, but this didn't help at all. What could cause this issue?
    • When I try to switch pages within a Topic (by typing the page number or pressing the numbers) I get a blank table like in the screenshot below (no posts are shown). If I click a direct post link when I'm on the main index forum page, i can see the last page and the newest post, but when i try to go a page back, the same issue happens again.

    I already tried adding
    PHP Code:
    define('DISABLE_HOOKS'true); 
    into the config file, because we had some patches and hacks (youtube hack etc.) back on 3.8.2., but this didn't help out either. So I would be glad if you could help me out, because I was not able to solve this 2 issues in the last 4-5 days.

    Read the information on the home of the admin panel and delete all plugins and old products, not just the line you added in config.php

        Yes, you should read the information that should be updated, the search index and the information of the forum, as well as other updates. it is very strange that you do not see the information, I have upgraded from version 4.1.1 to 5.0.5 and the information I've seen.

          Well I'm rebuildung the search index right now, but it still takes its time since we have like 800k posts in the forum.

          When I go to Products & Hooks in the ACP, I only see forumrunner and some other thing that is lined and deactivated, no other plugins whatsoever are shown.

          And I still don't get it, that I can't see the Threads & Posts options in the ACP

            Check in the forum that permits threads are visible. Go to AdminCP-> Channel Menagement-> View Permissions, check that the permissions are set for all user groups to "YES". It is obvious that the permissions are turned on what you prefer. Check in the forum that permits threads are visible. by Channel Permissions Manager

              No, you didn't get my problem. All Users can see the forums etc., but I miss the Option in the ACP where i can modify thread settings etc... prune old threads with old posts etc.

                You can enter a screenshot of the admin panel left side?

                    If I understand correctly, you can not see the posts and comments through the admin panel, but only from the forum. I hope I have understood your problem.

                      1) There is no Threads & Posts section in the AdminCP within vBulletin 5.0.5. There is no way to bring it back at this time.

                      2) How many posts are you displaying per page in your settings?

                        So how to prune posts?

                        I can't see this setting in the ACP as well, only numbers for users to chose can be set. Screenshot: Click image for larger version

                          For the first problem, you should use the file tools.php be included in the core folder / install and operate on all the options. The file tolls.php you can find it in the folder of the software on your computer, and using FTP do_not_upload you put it in the folder that I described above and send him running. For example, www.yousite.com / core / install / tools.php. It could also be a problem of skin or translation (if not using the original English translation).

                            I already tried the Options on the tools.php file, but nothing did help.

                            The language was imported from our last forum automatically, we don't have any forum language besides Turkish installed. Is there a way to restore English at least?

                            BTW: All Erorrs of my Posts (Post #1 and Post #12) are still persistent and I can't seem to find a solution for these. I'm disappointed of vBB 5 to the maximum, the sadest part is, that our forum is dying since the upgrade radically. Nothing works properly and the users don't accept the new forum software like it is right now. You don't even offer a downgrade option to save our database.

                              You have eliminated the English language from the forum? I hope not, the official language must NEVER be deleted. You can restore the file or tools.php or by placing it not as a master language. Here's how to change the language of the original file and upload it like any language.

                              Find:

                              HTML Code:
                              <language name="MASTER LANGUAGE" vbversion="5.0.5" product="vbulletin" type="master">
                              and replace with:

                              HTML Code:
                              <language name="english" vbversion="5.0.5" product="vbulletin" type="custom">

                              One solution would be for us to go back with the version, use impex.
