  • Forum naming conventions

    Renamed 'Main Forum' to 'Site Related', but the URL still says 'main-forum'.

    Also created a 'General' forum, but the URL is named 'general-aa'

    Is this normal?

    No it's not, it's a horrible bug I'm afraid.

    http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-6125

    I had this on my vB5 sample site, www.talknewsuk.com. Hence it was me that logged the bug.

    I'm afraid the current fix is some horrible manual database edits.

    Depending on how far you've got, you might be better off deleting the channels (forums) you have set up and starting again.

    Note: make sure you only delete the forums you created, don't remove the top level "Forum" channel and don't remove Blogs, groups etc.

      tx. I am keeping my testing to a minimum, and don't mind re-installing again, dropping the dbase, etc.

      I already found out the hard way about deleting Forum, Blogs, Groups, Special from the Forum/Channel manager. It seemed totally confusing at first glance, and assumed they were just normal inactive default 'forums'.

        Yes, at the moment it's good to do a bit of testing before taking vB5 live. It has some interesting quirks.

        Another good one is moving threads....there is an issue with the route not changing properly.

          As a workaround, you can select "Edit Page" in Site Builder while viewing the forum in question. When you save the page you can change the URL and Meta Information.

            Its normal if another called 'general' already exists, since the url has to be unique, vB sorts this out by appending '-aa'

              Should really just append the nodeid or something instead, instead of AA.
