  • Similar threads wont show

    Just upgraded to 3.5
    using default search method but dont see any similar threads

    have turned on
    Show Similar Threads -> Yes
    Automatic Similar Thread Search -> Yes
    Similar Threads Relevance Threshold -> 3.5

    Rebuild Similar Threads completed

    still similar threads dont show

    for example here is a forum with 8 threads - all have the word 'cancer' in the title
    http://www.vedicschool.com/ivi/forum...splay.php?f=44

    clicking on any of them, no similar threads are shown.

    thanks

    This is almost certainly a problem with a customized template. Try this. Create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Then change to this styleand view your forums with it. Do you have the same problem?

      Didnt work
      the only thing I did was change css colors

      also now even though the vBulletin3 is selected to 'dont allow user selection' it is showing in the select box

      also the other wierd thing from a previous post is that we have users/search for users/ list visitors in the last 24 hours - and u said this was a hack - but we never did any such hack

      so I dont know why these things arent responding or if they are related somehow

      please get us to hide the extra styles too now, along with showing the similar threads

      thanks

          Have you tried my suggestion in post #2? You should not have this problem on an unmodified vB.

          If so, please provide a link to your forums and enable the original vB style.

            Try this query:
            Code:
            SELECT `threadid` , `title` , `similar`
            FROM `thread`
            ORDER BY `similar` DESC
            and look, if there is something in the colum "similar". If yes, then look into the threads with the thread-id shown in the first colum.

            The link above is wrong. Should be: http://www.vedicschool.com/ivi/forum...splay.php?f=44

              Yes I tried this, it didnt work. As u can see from my responses, I have no programming knowledge - so I couldnt hack this script. And I didnt hire anyone to hack either. U guys loaded the original version, I uploaded the upgrade with your assistance. That is all.

              I enabled the vB 3.5 as the original style as per your request here - (or did u mean the vB2.x (I tried both but neither shows the similar links). The link is Now here are a few things about the forum - I replaced the colors in the gradient_tcat.gif, and tcat_square, and one other banner - they are still showing even in the original sytle.

              Also I added a new banner across the top (replaced vBulletin2_logo.gif)

              these are the changed I made to the software

                  If you have not installed any plugins or hacks (which includes portals), fill out a support ticket at:

                  Be sure to include the login info to your Admin CP, phpMyAdmin and FTP. Please also include a complete description of the problem.
