  • installed but nothing seems to work?

    I can get to the admincp and login but when I try to view the forum it just says:

    That action could not be completed. Please try again, and if this occurs again please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message.
    Seems admin is logged in even though I logged outta admincp. I can't see any changes I make though?

    Did you upload the included .htaccess file or web.config file?

        You have a UTF8 bom, or other junk before the opening php tags in your presentation config.php file.

          This what the one in the upload folder says. I'm not a web person so I don't know if "/<?php" looks right?

            The very first character in the file should be <. The first / is causing your problems.

              Odd I copied what I had but when I go to look at the file that first / isn't there? I did edit the 1st file with notepad if that helps. When I tried notepad on the 2nd file there where no line breaks so I used wordpad.

                When you safe the file, save it as ANSI/ASCII or UTF8 without bom.

                  Yes!!! that's seem to be it.

                  Is this how it should look now? I thought it would look more like this very forum since it's the same product? Is there a guide somewhere to get it there if so?

                    The system is changed a lot from a basic forum. On an upgrade, it would be more similar to what you have now but a new installation is a bit bare bones. Should add some forums and play with it. Ask questions in the Site Builder or General Questions forums if you get stuck.
