  • Where did the "import settings" XML button go?

    Isn't there supposed to be an XML import settings option and some other dialog on the main Vbulletin Options menu?

    I just reinstalled from a fresh Vb3 distribution (doing development) and for some reason it is not appearing now...

    any ideas?

    No, there has never been an option to import settings. Was this from a hack perhaps?

      If I remember correctly, it is possible but only in debug mode.

        Hmm... the only thing I installed before on the other box was the XML for 'Vb3 classic' (a vb2-ish style)

          On the install with the XML settings import working, when I click on the

          Vbulletin Options > expand tab...

          it drops down:

          Vbulletin Options
          Admin Help Manager

          Admin Help Manager is not there by default.

          When I click on "Vbulletin Options" under the Vbulletin Options > expand tab...

          Between "Settings to Edit" and "Expand Settings Group" I have a box that contains these options:

          Developer Options
          Add New Setting Group
          Download Settings XML File
          Import Settings XML File

          Ahhhhhh I bet I know what it is.... YEP.

          I had $debug='1'; in the config.php on the one where these options are available.

            As I said above, the option is only avaible in debug mode
